Paddington (PG) is a wonderful family film. It is one bear’s search for a home. A search to belong. The cast included many famous faces – Jim Broadbent, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman and more. I just knew that I was going to be in for a great film and I was not disappointed.
Paddington has all the elements that a great family film needs – lovable characters, a ‘typical’ family unit, a nosy neighbour and a villain. It is all good family viewing.
Paddington is delightfully portrayed through animation. Those big eyes could melt the hardest heart – as Mr Brown found out. He was perfectly played by Hugh Bonneville and in complete contrast from his Lord Grantham character in Downton Abbey.
