Story: Based on the series of children's books by Michael Bond, Paddington tells the story about a young Peruvian bear who travels from his native rainforest in South America to London, where he attempts to find himself a new family to live with.

Review: When Paddington (Whishaw) arrives in London (after he loses most of his family in a natural disaster back in Peru), he is initially lost in a sea of strangers and of course, a bit overwhelmed by the whole 'bright lights, big city' vibe. Nevertheless, he does have a taste for all things British (with an accent to match and a love for marmalade too) and stoically decides to wait it out at Paddington Station until hopefully, he will meet a family which will let him into their home and make him part of the family unit.

As a helpful indicator of his intentions, he sports a sign around his neck that reads: 'Please look after this bear. Thank you.' Soon, Mr Brown (Bonneville), Mrs Brown (Hawkins) and their kids notice him and decide to take him home. He can stay, says Mr Brown, but for only one night. Back in the Browns' comfortable lodgings, Mrs Bird (Walters) manages the house in her own eccentric-but-efficient way. Mrs Brown learns that Paddington - a name she coined for him back at the train station - is quite literally, a rare bear and helps him to connect with his past in order to give him emotional grounding.

Along the way, Millicent the taxidermist (Kidman, channeling a 101 Dalmatians-style Cruella De Vil) finds out about Paddington's rare breed and makes it her mission to turn him into her latest specimen, stuffed with sawdust and preserved for posterity. The Browns and of course Paddington, will avoid her at all costs.

The seamless blending of animation with live action is the most striking point in the film. Apart from gently delivering the message about the importance of belonging, the jaunty film score also keeps things moving along rather nicely. Fun family viewing.
