Paddington (2014)

Created using computer generated imagery and animatronics, we have a very realistic bear family who have a learning episode from an English explorer. What ensues is a young bear coming to London in the hopes of finding a home.

Director Paul King has assembled a great English cast with Nicole Kidman playing a svelte villain. Shot in real life depicting sets as if they were animated, it creates a warm feeling where we wonder if our worlds could be magical too.

A children’s film, it has been described as a comedy. It is actually a far more simplistic fare for younger kids who can appreciate the situation and humour. Animated films are increasingly more deep and dark these days but this one has stuck to safe, neutral ground.

A marmalade watch.
