Storyline

A young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kind Brown family, who read the label around his neck ('Please look after this bear. Thank you.') and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. Written by Marmalade Films

A delightfully warm and funny family film
1 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well this was a wonderful surprise. Full of charm and wit, Paddington is an irresistibly heart-warming film that everyone in the family will enjoy.

Everything from the quirky humour, to the British scenery to the wonderfully-animated bear himself is a true delight to watch. The cast are also brilliant. The Brown family feel genuinely real and easy to relate to. I particularly enjoyed Huge Bonneville's amusing performance as Mr Brown, as he overcomes his initial distaste for Paddington and grows to love him as the rest of his family do. Other stand outs include Peter Capaldi, as crafty neighbour Mr Curry, and Nicole Kidman as the Cruella De-Ville-esque villain.

However, the true highlight of the film is of course Paddington himself. Whether he's flying down a staircase amidst a pool of water or clinging on to a bus for dear life to give a man his wallet back, he lights up the screen with his presence. Yet it is his honest and virtuous nature that makes him so lovable as a character. Innovative and fresh , yet a fine complement to the books, you would do well to find a more pleasant and charming family film than Paddington.
