A movie that the whole family will love and enjoy
If you remember the fuzzy emblem of childhood- this cute teddy bear, well then you will find this new version of Paddington being brought beautifully back to life with amazing visual effects. It is every bit sweet and charming as Bond's original creation and an absolute delight to watch.
The movie is adapted from Michael's Bond universally beloved books- Paddington. And it follows the journey of an optimistic and polite young bear from Peru who travels to London in search of a new home and family after enduring a fatal earthquake that destroyed his home in the rainforest of Peru.
The Brown family invites him to stay with them and they soon discover how much comic mayhem this one young bear brings to their lives.
However it is not all bliss for Paddington, as someone else has an eye on him: taxidermist Millicent Clyde has designs on Paddington's rare Peruvian hide...
This is certainly one film that the whole family will love; it is filled with enormous humour in an unmistakably British way and it will certainly take you on an adventure.
The acting was sensational from Nicole Kidman being a fanatical taxidermist to Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins playing Mr & Mrs Brown, two imperfect parents with transparently good intentions and of course the main character Paddington (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who had the ideal voice making the production such an enjoyment to watch.
I seriously did not expect to laugh myself half- silly and get that ache in my belly from an overdose of laughter. Paddington undoubtedly left a smile on my face and gave me a nostalgic tingle...
