    Sweet, funny, moving drama. Gonna watch mary poppins again for the firts time in 25 years. Emma Thompson is terrific!

    But why is this in the music top list?

    Lovely film. Such a pity that it was only nominated in the category of "Best Original Score." The performances are outstanding. Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, and Colin Farrell are top notch. I actually was shocked at the range that Farrell had in his role. His absolute greatest, by far. 4 years 1 month ago

    Hanks and Giamatti were great, but this is really a showcase for the irrepressible Emma Thompson. She hits every note here with ease and panache. Truly splendid to watch.

    The film is really bogged down with all of the flashbacks. They are bewildering at the start of the film, and then their significance is telegraphed halfway through the film. The last couple are necessary for the full emotional impact, but I wish the filmmakers had devised a way to make this movie without overuse of these flashbacks which killed momentum at certain key points.

    Still, the film crescendoes nicely to a surprisingly moving climax.
