Dir. Paul King. U.K., France, 2017, 103 mins. 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 first 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 the antique shop of Mr. Gruber (Jim Broadbent) 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, and slapstick hilarity, Paddington 2 is a joyful experience about facing the world with kindness.
