Christmas is all about rekindling the magic of childhood and we can think of no better way to do this than to sit back and enjoy the wonder that is Paddington.
The film, starring Nicole Kidman and Julie Walters, brings to life Paddington Bear, the little Peruvian bear fascinated by all things British. And frankly girls, it is the perfect antidote to a tough day in the office or a long evening Christmas shopping.
While not a Christmas movie as such, the film still explores the importance of magic and imagination, and like all fantastic children’s films allows good to triumph over evil every single time!
Here’s what to expect from this must-see flick!
1. An array of colours
From the pastel paint decorating the houses on the Brown’s street in London to the vivid red of Paddington’s cherished hat and the deep blue of his iconic duffel coat, this film is a total treat for the eyes!
2. Classic British accents
Is there anything more comforting than an old-fashioned British accent? This film, despite its modern setting, hints at an era gone by with its quaint English accents and British mannerisms.
3. Laugh-out-loud moments
There’s nothing quite as charming or funny as the personification of animals so watching little Paddington navigate day-to-day life in a modern family home is cute, touching and downright hilarious at times.
4. Good vs. Evil theme
The good vs. evil theme plays a massive role throughout the entire film and reminds us why family films are so important, especially at this time of year!
5. The urge to have a little Paddington of your own
Once you watch the flick, you’ll see what we mean. Having a well-meaning, but clumsy little bear wander around your house eating maramalade sandwiches is pretty much all you’ll want after spending an hour and a half in the company of him and his beloved family, the Browns.
