Paddington Rated PG


Dir. Paul King. UK/France, 2014. 1h 35m. Starring Ben Whishaw (voice), Julie Walters, Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, Peter Capaldi, Jim Broadbent, Nicole Kidman

A young duffle coat-wearing, marmalade-scoffing bear travels to London from the jungles of Peru in search of a new home. Finding himself lost at Paddington Station, he meets the kindly Brown family, who offer him a temporary haven and safety from a taxidermist with evil plans. A kind-hearted family-friendly adventure that is as witty and clever as it is charming.

‘Marmaladen with gloriously silly jokes, pitch-perfect performances and incidental detail, this is a warm, witty and wondrously inventive great big bear-hug of a movie.’ ★★★★★ Chris Hewitt, Empire Magazine

‘Endearing, hilarious, and for humans of a certain vintage, tearfully nostalgic.’ ★★★★ Kate Muir, The Times
