Paddington

I enjoyed this movie, which had some whimsy that reminded me of Wes Anderson. I have not read any Paddington books but I was intrigued to know he had come from darkest Peru, having once visited there. I did not meet any talking bears, but apparently they are quite rare. Anyway, it was mostly about Paddington coming to London and hoping to find a home. This theme of being an outsider feels particularly poignant with all the news of Syrian refugees lately. Unfortunately, the villain is a curator at the magnificent British Museum, where I once examined sand dollar specimens.
