Paddington (2015) Review | FilmGamesEtc

Author Michael Bond introduced the world to Paddington in 1958. His ursine protagonist’s stories were simple, innocent tales of a clumsy character experiencing everyday occurrences such as riding the subway or going Christmas shopping. The inspiration for Bond’s Paddington partly fueled by images of children refugees aboard Kindertransports before the outset of WWII; the migrating bear’s origins are still acknowledged in director Paul King’s adaptation of Paddington from page to (bigger) screen. Make no mistake, this is a children’s film replete with bright colours, improbable physical comedy and a single instance of bathroom humour (thankfully left in the bathroom). Paddington manages to entertain with childlike energy while still having something of substance to say with regards to topics of immigration, refuge, acceptance and most of all, family.
