I may have mentioned (several times) that I'm a big fan of the Paddington Bear stories.
I still have all the books from my childhood.
I even have a Latin version of the first book.
And of course I've crocheted a Paddington.
So I just had to see the new film that's out.
It's a delightful, funny, heartwarming story.
I smiled and laughed my way through the film, with the occasional tear in the eyes.
It was not the Paddington of my childhood. This was a revised, renewed and updated version. It was still enjoyable but just not MY Paddington.
Sally Hawkins as Mrs Brown was lovely. I was particularly drawn to her very colourful knitwear and charmingly quirky house.
I'd recommend the film, (and not just for the knitwear) it's great fun, you just need to put aside the original (and best) Paddington, and go with the flow!
