Paddington 2

France/U.K., 2017

Delightfully charming in all ways imaginable, Paddington 2 begins with the ever so polite and plucky titular bear determined to earn enough money to buy a particularly handsome pop-up book for his Aunt Lucy. When the book is stolen, Paddington is accused of the crime but even after he’s sent to prison, co-writer-director Paul King and crew keep every twist and turn fantastically light as Paddington’s adoptive family, the Browns, search for the real culprit. As visually entrancing as it can be wonderfully witty, this sequel is an instant classic for the ages.  

DCP, color, 104 min. Director: Paul King. Screenwriter: Paul King, Simon Farnaby. With: Ben Whishaw, Sally Hawkins, Hugh Grant.
