Paddington (2014)


I’ve not heard of director Paul King before, but what he’s done with Paddington is craft a clever, witty and heart-warming film.  With a plot which contains a couple of stories from the first of Michael Bond’s book about the bear from Darkest Peru, the main theme is that of wanting to belong and finding one’s place in the world as Paddington comes to London to find somewhere to live.

A hugely enjoyable film; the cast are all super, there are brilliant bears and there are some wonderful bits of film making.  Great stuff.
