My review of Paddington is here. I’ve restrained myself from giving spoilers BUT IT’S SO HARD. I want to rave about it!

To enter, email editor (at) darkmatterzine (dot) com with ‘Paddington’ in the subject heading and your postal address in the email before 5pm AEST (Melbourne time) 10 December 2014.

Studio Canal says:

From the producer of Gravity and the Harry Potter franchise, the story is adapted from Michael Bond’s books. PADDINGTON is an optimistic and polite young bear from Peru who travels to London in search of a home and a family. When the Brown family invites him to stay with them, little do they realise how much comic mayhem one young bear will bring to their everyday family life.  Stars include Nicole Kidman (The Hours), Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, The Monuments Men), Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine, Happy Go Lucky), Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, World War Z), Jim Broadbent (Harry Potter franchise, Iris), Julie Walters (Harry Potter franchise) and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Cloud Atlas) as the voice of Paddington Bear.
