Paddington. Paddington. Paddington.
Have you been to the movies these holidays?
We went to watch Paddington today - we got there early to avoid the crowds. We got there at 8:47am. The cinema wasn't even open, and the movie didn't start until 9:40am. Oops.
But the film was brilliant.
Beforehand we had had a family vote on which movie to go to. 75% of our family wanted to see Paddington. 100% loved it. Not bad stats, right?
It's delightful, it's fun, it's funny, and Ben Whishaw (of Bright Star fame - another of my favourite all-time films) voices the bear himself.
Nicole Kidman is fabulous as the villain. Sally Hawkins plays the part of a warm mum. Jim Broadbent is kooky as ever.
From darkest Peru to the hustle of London, Paddington finds a new home and a new family amidst a huge adventure. And the underlying story? It's the story of a bear misplaced, who struggles to fit in to his new found home.
Seriously great fun for the whole family.
Not sponsored. Just 100% dug this movie and I think you will too. Go see it for yourself. GO!
