CGiii Comment

Well...what can we say about the most perfect family film that hasn't been said before!?! Absolutely nothing. It is what it is...a timeless, perfect family film.

There is no LGBT content whatsoever...but, because it's a musical...Steven Paul Davies decided to include it in his ludicrous book: Out at the Movies: A History of Gay Cinema - which, in reality, is a subjective list of his [frequently questionable] favourite films!


The(ir) Blurb...

Maria (Dame Julie Andrews) is a failure as a nun. The Mother Superior sends her off in answer to a letter from a retired Naval Captain for a governess for his seven children. She goes to their house and finds that she is the latest in a long line of governesses run off by the children. She teaches the children to sing and that becomes their bonding force, of course leading her to fall in love with their father and marries him. As this is happening Austria votes to be assumed by Germany on the eve of World war II.
