  • Directed by: Alain Gomis
  • Cast: Véro Tshanda Beya Mputu, Papi Mpaka, Gaetan Claudia

Steven (Farrell) is a cardiac surgeon who finds himself being stalked by a creepy teenager, martin (Keoghan); then Steven’s family is threatened with an inexplicable sickness.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.
