‘Paddington’, now playing at Pukekohe’s Cinema 3 complex, is the one movie that every kid should see before they go back to school at the end of this month.
It is one of the best children’s stories ever to be seen on the big screen, as the review in the English tabliod, ‘The Guardian’, stated: “’Paddington’ is as warm as putting on a pair of socks in the middle of winter,” which sums it up adequately.
“Please look after this bear. Thank you”
‘Paddington’ is all about the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear 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.
Movie-making jumps to another level
Taken from the novels by Michael Bond, the film is written for screen and directed by Paul King, a British writer and director who works in television, film and theatre, and specialises in comedy.
Bringing Paddington Bear to life for the big screen was a master stroke by King. Integrating a digitised bear with human actors takes movie-making to another level.
King, a very experienced writer, produced his first feature film, ‘Bunny and the Bull’, in 2009 but he earned a BAFTA nomination as Best New Director in 2004 for ‘The Mighty Boosh’.
‘Paddington’ stars Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Nicole Kidman, with Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington.
