Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Review
Directed by Rob Marshall (Into the Woods) and written by David Magee (Life of Pi), Mary Poppins Returns is the sequel to the 1964 Hollywood classic. Starring Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place) alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda (stage's Hamilton), Ben Whishaw (Paddington), Julie Walters (Mamma Mia!), Meryl Streep (Julie & Julia) and Colin Firth (The King's Speech). "Decades after her original visit, the magical nanny returns to help the Banks siblings and Michael's children through a difficult time in their lives". 54 years later and Mary Poppins has a sequel; is it a blatant and lazy cash-grab or a charming and nostalgic return to Cherry Tree Lane?
The Upside (2019) Review
The Upside is directed by Neil Burger (Divergent) and written by Jon Hartmere (The Electric Company). This American remake stars Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Kevin Hart (Ride Along) and Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies). "A comedic look at the relationship between a wealthy man with quadriplegia and an unemployed man with a criminal record who's hired to help him". Was an American remake of an overlooked (outside of Europe) French film necessary?
The Favourite (2018) Review
This award season's frontrunner?The Favourite is directed by Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) and written by Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara (Ashby). Set in the early 1700s, The Favourite stars Olivia Colman (Broadchurch), Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener) and Emma Stone (La La Land) as Queen Anne, Lady Sarah and Abigail Masham. "A frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah". It might be a period drama with a talented cast, but is The Favourite a legitimate contender this award season?
