Paddington, the hero of Michael Bond's books, may be an undersized Peruvian bear but he packs a warm hug in this family-friendly treat. Taken in by the Brown family (parents played by Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins), Paddington (sweetly voiced by Ben Whishaw) indulges in plenty of extreme marmalade-fun, and a moderately scary run-in with menacing taxidermist Millicent (Nicole Kidman).
