Set in the ‘Golden Age’ of seventeenth-century Amsterdam, Tulip Fever is a lavish period drama with rapturous costumes and all the beauty of a Vermeer painting.
A young orphan girl named Sophia (Vikander) finds herself betrothed against her will to the demanding merchant Cornelis Sandvoort (Christoph Waltz), who’s focussed only on her producing a male heir. But when Cornelis calls upon the artistic eye of a struggling young portraitist named Jan Van Loos (DeHaan) to paint his dear wife, a red-hot affair begins to unfold.
With the help of the Sandvoorts' colourful maid, Maria (Holliday Grainger), and her fishmonger lover, William (O'Connell), Sophia and Jan risk everything in the hope of making a fortune on the soaring tulip market and escaping to the New World.
Nearly three decades after her first visit to London, the enigmatic Mary Poppins (Blunt) soars back into the capital to look after the Banks children in their time of need.
The now grown-up Jane (Mortimer) and Michael Banks (Whishaw) are living in the same house on Cherry Tree Lane, along with Michael’s three children and their housekeeper Ellen (Walters).
The family are in danger of losing their home, and Michael is struggling after a personal loss, but the practically perfect nanny returns just in time to rekindle the fun and wonder missing from their lives – with a little help from street lamplighter Jack (Miranda) and her eccentric cousin Topsy (Streep).
Boasting wonderful songs, classic 2D animation and cameos from some familiar faces, this is a delightful reunion for all to enjoy, whether you grew up with the magic or are discovering it for the first time.
