Paddington 2. 2018. Great Britain/France/USA. Directed by Paul King. 104 min.
Folks, gather around for a tale of kindness from 2018's most pure-hearted film. Years after being taken in by the human Brown family, Paddington Bear is determined to find the perfect birthday gift for his fellow bear, Aunt Lucy, and settles on an antique pop-up book. After the delightfully damaged villain Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant) discovers its value, a series of Chaplinesque hijinks and misunderstandings land Paddington in prison. Fear not, as Paddington helps everyone change for the better in a beautifully animated film as sweet as his beloved orange marmalade. Courtesy of Warner Bros.
