Paddington France, UK 2014 – 95min.
Paddington is the story of a young Peruvian bear forced to leave his forest in the wake of a natural disaster. He goes to London in search of a better life based on his aunt’s advice. But reality is far from being as welcoming as the dream. By chance, he crosses paths with the Brown family in Paddington Station. Little by little, he becomes indispensable to them and finds more than just shelter - Paddington finds a new home.
Based on the book series by Michael Bond, and in the wake of illustrated comics and even a TV series, Paddington goes to the movies for the first time in this very funny film. Voiced by up-and-coming English actor Ben Whishaw, this cute and clumsy bear is sure to win the hearts of children just in time for Christmas. Not just a story for kids though, the movie also has a message of tolerance for those who have to make their way in a strange country, who should be accepted despite their differences. With a good number of wild and wacky scenes, plus Nicole Kidman as an evil taxidermist who wants to add Paddington to her stuffed collection.
