Paddington has grown up deep in the Peruvian jungle with his Aunt Lucy who has raised her nephew to dream of an exciting life in London. When an earthquake destroys their home, Aunt Lucy decides to send her nephew to England, in search of a better life. Arriving alone at Paddington Station, Paddington soon finds that city life is pretty much different what he learned about it. Then he meets the nice Brown family, who find him with a label, tied around his neck which reads ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’ They offer him a temporary home, everything looks fine but Paddington adventures are only about to start…
The movie Paddington brings together an all-star cast including Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey ), Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Ben Whishaw as voice of Paddington.
Here is the official synopsis: “From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.”
