What goes best with food? A good movie, of course! This week we’ll review one of the most-loved fictional characters by kids, Paddington.
Paddington is a young bear who comes all the way from Peru to London to find his home. Unfortunately, the poor little bear is lost and alone at a train station. Luckily, he meets the Browns who let him stay temporarily before he goes to seek out his family, while he escapes from a taxidermist who wants to stuff him and add him to his collection.

Paddington is a comedy which people of all ages, not just kids, can enjoy. His charming character brings smiles and laughter throughout the movie. Moreover, the movie’s story wisely illustrates the discrimination between the different social classes and the display of ridicule by the urbanites to the villagers.
The movie depicts arrogant Londoners instead of the stereotypical “British Gentlemen”. With the sarcastic dark comedy style, the movie presents serious social issues in a fun and casual fashion. Perhaps, it is true that the rapid civilization modified people and alter their gentle nature.
In conclusion, Paddington is guaranteed to be a fun movie for the whole family to watch. It has both comedic and meaningful interpretations. The movie will lift your mood and you will want your own Paddington at home.
