When a young orphaned talking bear from Peru arrives at Paddington Station, London in search of a new home, the Brown family offers him a place to stay, naming him after the station. But although most of the Browns are charmed by their new guest, Mr. Brown is not so trusting and insists that the bear cannot stay with them for long.

Fortunately Paddington has an idea, and sets about trying to find the original owner of his red hat, an explorer that his family once knew. But the search goes awry when he becomes the target of an evil taxidermist woman (Nicole Kidman) who’s determined to capture him and stuff him for a museum exhibit.

Based on the beloved children’s books, Paddington is a heart-warming comedy that celebrates family and encourages kindness to strangers. The film is family-friendly, but does include some mild crude humor.
