    ★★★★★

    I don't exactly remember what rating I gave the first Paddington film. All I remember was that it was kinda...perfect.

The film sells itself on a more generalized "coming into the future" sort of vibe for how Calcutta has modernized in the early 60's, however it's more blunt and realistic themes on the rise of second wave feminism are more understated whenever you read the short synopses around the internet.

    Sure, they tell you that the movie is about a…
