Dir. Paul King. 2017, 103 mins. DCP. With Ben Whishaw (voice of Paddington), Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, Hugh Grant. In this sequel—every bit as charming and funny as the original film—the young bear now living comfortably with the Brown family in London seeks a special present for his beloved Aunt Lucy. A visit to Mr. Gruber’s (Jim Broadbent) antique shop leads to the discovery of a beautiful and mysterious pop-up book featuring detailed scenes of London—the perfect gift! Paddington just has to earn enough money to buy it, and to keep it out of the hands of a master thief, played with delicious gusto by Hugh Grant. Featuring a top-notch cast, magical animated sequences in which the book comes to life, and pure slapstick hilarity, Paddington 2 is a joyful experience. Paddington faces the world with kindness—and always with a side of marmalade.
“Paddington 2 is another near-pawfect family entertainment, honoring the cozy, can-do spirit of [Michael] Bond’s stories while bringing them smoothly into a bustling, diverse 21st-century London.”—Guy Lodge, Variety
