I hope you don’t mind us throwing the occasional film review on the blog, we might continue with it if you guys like it! I watched the film Paddington with my family this Easter and oh my word it is such a lovely film! It’s filled with fun, laughs and good old English wit! We had such a wonderful time watching this film, it’s one of those films that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside…
The film is a beautiful retelling of the classic story of Paddington Bear, for those of you who weren’t read this sweet childhood story before bed it’s about a plucky young bear from darkest Peru who decides to pack his bags full of marmalade and travel to London where he is taken in by a slightly dysfunctional family, who, through Paddington, learn to be slightly less dysfunctional.
This film is jam-packed full of very famous British faces who include Hugh Bonneville, Michael Gambon, Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi and Matt Lucas. As you can probably tell from just a few of the cast this film is acted incredibly well. Also, the script is amazingly written with witty lines and generally hilarious moments that this slightly mischievous bear gets up to.
But this film isn’t just for children as you might be thinking, both myself and my parents genuinely loved this film as it was written with a certain type of humour that would fly over children’s heads but we, being older and have a better understanding of the world understand. But there are also some tense moments as there is a ‘badie’ figure of a Taxidermist played by Nichole Kidman (told you it was a good cast!) with some incredibly close shaves for young Paddington Bear!
This is the perfect film for any occasion and is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face, but if you’ve seen it and disagree I would love to hear why in the comments! I’m going to rate this film a five out of five stars * * * * *, I honestly cannot fault it, it’s just beautiful but for you to make your own decision I’ll leave the link to the trailer here.
