Seeing and Believing 184 | Rob Marshall’s Mary Poppins Returns and Barry Jenkins’s If Beale Street Could Talk
With their top-10 episode in the rear-view mirror, the guys get back into the groove of things with two films that are still going strong after their release at the end of 2018. First up is Disney’s sequel to a certain much-beloved Julie Andrews classic, with Emily Blunt taking up the umbrella to play Poppins. Then Wade and Kevin turn to another Oscar hopeful, Barry Jenkin’s adaptation of the James Baldwin novel If Beale Street Could Talk.
