After Stoker divided opinion we looked high and wide for something a little less grizzly (sorry). Strangely topical and completely adorable, Paddington (2014, 95mins, rated PG) is this week’s Streamers Film Club movie of the week. Maybe even watch it back-to-back with Stoker for a weird Nicole Kidman double bill?
Once again, you can find the film here where it’s currently free to watch for existing Amazon Prime members. Enjoy.

The official blurb reads:
After a deadly earthquake destroys his home in Peruvian rainforest, a young bear (Ben Whishaw) makes his way to England in search of a new home. The bear, dubbed “Paddington” for the london train station, finds shelter with the family of Henry (Hugh Bonneville) and Mary Brown (Sally Hawkins). Although Paddington’s amazement at urban living soon endears him to the Browns, someone else has her eye on him: Taxidermist Millicent Clyde (Nicole Kidman) has designs on the rare bear and his hide.
