How Mary Poppins will end one day, in my fantasy.
My Infinite List of Favourite Films → The Sound of Music
Based on the book by Maria von Trapp, the film is about the author as a young woman who leaves an Austrian convent to become a governess to the seven children of a naval officer widower. Maria soon learns that the children are unhappy and resentful of the governesses that their father keeps hiring, and have managed to run each of them off one by one. All these children need is a little love to change their attitudes. Maria teaches the children to sing, and through her, music is brought back into the hearts and home of the Von Trapp family. This story takes place in pre-World War II Austria.
