Paul King and co. have adapted a classic children’s character with the success we wish all revamps achieved.
King’s film is a very modern picture, whilst retaining the very British heart of the classic children’s books. Not only is it set in London, but Paddington features a plethora of British talent, such as classic actors like Imelda Staunton and Michael Gambon. Yet, it the undeniable humour of the film that is its greatest success.
The self-deprecating wit of Paddington is a pleasure to behold. Simply put, Paddington is an utterly-brilliant, utterly-British belter.
