Overview

The Banks family is in desperate need of a good nanny. The children, Jane and Michael, pen an adorable advertisement for a nanny with a cheery disposition, rather than the stern, no-nonsense types that they’re used to. Their father, George, disagrees with this poppycock, tearing up the ad and throwing it into the fireplace, where the scraps of paper are whipped up through the chimney and into the sky by a strong wind. Big mistake George. Cue: the magical, charming Mary Poppins, who floats in over the London rooftops with her signature hat, umbrella and carpet bag, ready to transform the Banks’s dour lives with singing, dancing, adventure and a spoonful of sugar, of course.

Why You Should See This Film

It’s practically perfect in every way! From the dancing penguins to the acrobatic chimney sweeps, and even Dick Van Dyke’s questionable cockney accent. Celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, this supercalifragilisticexpialidocious film is irresistibly, infectiously joyful and there’s no better way to relive it than to follow the bouncing ball and sing along to all your favourite songs. Mary Poppins was widely considered Walt Disney’s crowning achievement; it was nominated for 13 Academy Awards and was the only film to be nominated for Best Picture during Walt's lifetime.
