Paddington is a shockingly sharp / smart little film.
I don't say "shockingly" to be dismissive of the genre, IP, or concept at all. This is a very underrated, accessible family film, and I'm surprised more people aren't saying, "You should see Paddington."
Some of the cinematography is arrestingly subtle, I think Paul King directs brilliantly, it has more fantasy elements than I expected (yes, in addition to the talking bear) and the output from the entire cast and crew is great.
