Computer graphics brought the beloved anthropomorphic bear into the 21st century, but this acclaimed live-action update sacrifices none of the character’s essential sweetness and cross-generational charm. In this adaptation, Paddington and his bucket hat arrive in modern-day London, searching for a new home, and run afoul of a craven taxidermist (Nicole Kidman) eager to stuff him. That a sequel arrived three years later should tell you how that worked out, but plot-driven thrills are second to the warm fuzzies brought on simply by watching this walking, talking teddy find a place for himself in human society. Rated G.
