After a deadly earthquake destroys his home in Peruvian rainforest, a young bear (Ben Whishaw) makes his way to England in search of a new home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets a kind family who read the label around his neck that says `Please look after this bear. Thank you.` The bear, dubbed `Paddington` after the London train station, finds shelter with the Brown family - Henry (Hugh Bonneville) and Mary (Sally Hawkins). Although Paddington's amazement at urban living soon endears him to the Browns, someone else has her eye on him - taxidermist Millicent Clyde (Nicole Kidman), who has designs on the rare bear and his hide.

Now, perhaps most shockingly, comes the revelation that a 21st-century computer-generated big-screen bear can be every bit as endearingly entertaining as his 70s TV stop-motion counterpart. Paddingtons creator, Michael Bond, says he slept soundly after seeing the new movie, and those in search of a family-friendly festive film treat will doubtless do the same. ...Read full review
Paddington brings childrens book hero Paddington Bear to the screen in a movie as sweet as orange marmalade, as sentimental as a stuffed toy from childhood. Its an utterly charming and endlessly inventive way of bringing a talking bear into present day London, a film that uses all of the magic of the medium and our fond memories of Michael Bonds beloved bear to give him life. ...Read full review
