A deadly earthquake destroys the Peruvian rainforest and a young bear (Ben Whishaw), makes his way to London in search of a new home. The bear, dubbed “Paddington” reaches the london train station and finds shelter with Henry (Hugh Bonneville) and Mary Brown (Sally Hawkins). Although Paddington’s amazement at urban life soon endears him to the Browns, someone else finds her eye on him: the sadist Taxidermist, Millicent Clyde (Nicole Kidman), who kills and stuffs exotic animals to house in the Natural History Museum. She becomes aware of Paddington and sets out to hunt him down. Through his journey, Paddington must not only find himself a humble abode in London, but also escape Millicent’s vicious plan to stuff him.
Based on Paddington Bear created by Michael Bond, the charmingly funny and shamelessly punny, Paddington is directed by Paul King, written by King and Hamish McColl, and produced by David Heyman. Ben Whishaw is the voice behind Paddington and will be seen along with co-stars Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters and Nicole Kidman. Paddington has become the highest-ever grossing non-Hollywood family film after banking $200million at the box office in its release year.
Interestingly, through the cute and cuddly Paddington, Paul King and David Heyman, have delivered an underlying message of tolerance and acceptance that strikes a palpable chord in today’s world, both for adults and children.
