About the Movie

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (Harry Potter franchise), Paddington brings us the live-action story of a young talking bear (Ben Whishaw of Skyfall) who finds himself lost and alone in London until he meets the kindly Brown family. They read the label around his neck that says, “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven. After a series of comic misadventures, Paddington must convince the Brown family that he belongs with them, all while staying out of the way of a museum taxidermist (Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman of The Golden Compass) who's got her eyes on him. Co-starring Michael Gambon (Harry Potter franchise), Academy Award-nominee Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), Oscar-nominee Julie Walters (Brave), Hugh Bonneville (TV's Downton Abbey), Academy Award-winner Peter Capaldi (TV's Doctor Who), Oscar-winner Jim Broadbent (Cloud Atlas), and Academy Award-nominee Imelda Staunton (Maleficent).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Despite the kid-gloves sensibility, "Paddington" delivers a knockout blend of fluid animation and live action. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jan 15, 2015

Fresh: Artfully and cleverly, the sweet spirit of that young bear from darkest Peru and his many London misadventures materializes brilliantly on screen in the very good hands of writer-director-conjurer Paul King. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Jan 15, 2015

Fresh: Kindness wins out in the end, naturally, but a specific and prescient form of kindness rather than the glib, one-size-fits-all brand usually seen in children's movies. – Andrew Lapin, NPR, Jan 15, 2015

Fresh: For parents looking for a film that'll please them and their kids in equal measure, Paddington is -- as Goldilocks would say in that other bear story -- just right. – Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press, Jan 15, 2015
