If you are seeking a fun and entertaining movie for the whole family to watch, kids included, I recommend Paddington (2014). The movie was inspired by the book, "A Bear Called Paddington", written in 1958 by Michael Bond and illustrated largely by Peggy Fortnum.
The movie follows the foundation of the book, which makes a beloved bear from our past, an adored bear in our present.
Through fabulous film animation, the developers have taken the lively bear from our minds and created a very life-like replica of the enchanting Paddington bear. He is so sweet and respectful that you wish you could snatch him from the screen and give him a hug.
Paddington is joined by Hugh Bonneville (the father in Downton Abbey) and Nicole Kidman to recreate this children's literature masterpiece into a delightful comedy film for all. I should warn you in advance, it might make you wish to paint trees in the entry of your home and slide down a banister.
Lesson learned: if you invite a bear to stay in your home, you will want to
personally introduce him to indoor plumbing and teach him how to properly
use it. Otherwise, you might need additional home insurance.
Paddington Movie Synopsis
Paddington When Paddington's uncle is killed and his home in darkest Peru is destroyed by a storm, he and his aunt decide to move to London, which is the home of a dear explorer friend who previously delighted them with stories of his glorious homeland. Aunt Lucy and Uncle Pastuzo never really expect to accept the explorer's open invitation to visit London, but now it seems the best option.
When they reach the cargo ships, Aunt Lucy tells Paddington that she will be going to the Home for Retired Bears and that he will travel alone to London where she is certain he will find a new home. After all, it is not time for him to retire. She places a tag on a string around his neck as she explains how, in the past, Londoner's took in children in railway stations during wartime and provided a safe and loving home. After placing his uncle's red hat on Paddington's head, Aunt Lucy kisses him goodbye and leaves the little stowaway in a covered lifeboat with a suitcase full of marmalade.
In the London train station, the Brown family is returning home when they pass a bear. Mrs. Brown turns around and goes back to check on the little bear. After talking to him and reading the note on his tag, she decides they should help him find a safe place. That safe place ends up being their home and that is where all the fun begins!
This is a movie everyone should watch! Take the time to fall in love with the little bear in the red hat & blue coat.
