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

Trivia

Nicole Kidman learned to throw and twirl knives for her role as Milicent. She has noted that during shooting, the producers told her to tone down her knife-throwing tricks, as it was considered too intense for a children's film. Ultimately, the scenes featuring her skills were cut out of the film. See more »

Goofs

When Millicent is interrogating the taxi driver, her hair changes between shots. See more »

Quotes

Joe: [Being hanged by Millicent Clyde] It's not even a code. It's more a set of guidelines than a binding ethos.

Quintessentially British, Irresistibly Warm
10 December 2014 | by CalRhysSee all my reviews

I have to state this before continuing with this review, prior to seeing this I was very reluctant and hesitant as to what I was due to view. After growing up hearing the stories and watching the animated tales of Paddington Bear, I was unsure as to whether a CGI-heavy live- action tale could really establish a story that portrays the bear in all his charm, well my predictions were woefully inaccurate. 'Paddington' is a very well-executed adaptation of the titular bear for a 21st century audience. From the producers of Harry Potter, 'Paddington' delivers a family-friendly and charming atmosphere whilst conveying an endearing and gloriously comedic tale about a bear and his adventures in London. One of the late and great films of the year, Paul King's irresistibly warm story creates a sense of nostalgia whilst boasting a quintessentially British feel and pitch-perfect humour that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
