About the film:

After working hard to earn enough money to buy the perfect birthday present for his Aunt Lucy, Paddington’s gift is stolen, and it’s up to him and his family to find the thief. A funny, sweet-natured film based on the stories of Paddington Bear created by Michael Bond.

“Paddington’s ability to positively impact people is so profound that it can’t help but stretch out towards the audience, too. We may know that being kind and polite doesn’t always set the world right, but damn if that little bear doesn’t make you want to try.”

—Kate Erbland, IndieWire
