Mary Poppins is arguably one of the most famous and well-loved films in the world, but how many of us are aware of the extent of the life lessons that it opens up to us? Yes, Mary Poppins has a great deal to say, and not just about talking umbrellas and bottomless bags (though both would come in handy…). Messages are hidden within that can influence how we live, how we view our own choices and mental health, the relationship with our parents, and even explain how to navigate the crazy adult world that we have grown to live in.In Practically Perfect: Life Lessons from Mary Poppins, award-winning writer and comedian Katy Brand explores how we can apply the messages from Mary Poppins to our everyday lives, covering themes as broad as the importance to mental health of keeping your bedroom tidy, our need for fantasy, the suffragettes, the pressure of toxic ideals of men having to provide for families (even when they hate their jobs and want to see their children and fly kites more), and the power of the capitalist system that we still live with today. This life advice is interwoven with a satisfying amount of geekery in the form of film analysis, interviews, and insider knowledge, allowing us to learn more about this remarkable character, and film, along the way.Practically Perfect is the common-sense manual for life that you never knew you needed.
