Based on Peter Turner’s memoir, Paul McGuigan’s highly acclaimed drama follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner (Jamie Bell) and imperious, vulnerable, Academy Award-winning actress Gloria Grahame (Annette Bening) in Liverpool in 1978. Tremendous performances by Bening and Bell (and from Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave in supporting roles) anchor this warm, funny, endearing and bittersweet love story.
This delightful sequel to the first Paddington sees the adorable bear now happily ensconced with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. Finding the perfect book for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, he embarks on some odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.
