As the evenings start to draw in and the weather starts to take a turn for the worse, it's always a good idea to have some entertaining movies lined up for those cosy nights in.
If you haven't seen it already, we highly recommend giving Paddington 2 a watch. Quite apart from featuring one of our fine silk cravats (on British actor Hugh Grant), this movie is suitable for all ages, and is a genuine delight, whether or not you have children.
Without giving anything away, the story goes like this: Paddington Bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) wants to buy an antique pop-up book of London for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday. Unfortunately, Paddington doesn't have enough money to pay for it, so he does what any self-respecting bear would do - he looks for work! Before Paddington is able to save enough money to buy it however, the book is stolen by local actor Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant), who has a much more sinister reason for wanting it.
Hugh Grant steals the show with his impeccable performance as scheming villain Phoenix Buchanan; an ageing, washed up actor, longing to be acting again in London’s West End, now reduced to doing dog food adverts. Not just aimed at children, the film will keep adults thoroughly entertained too, with a series of smart jokes, beautiful sets, and top-class actors sending themselves up perfectly.
Hugh Grant is seen wearing our Enlai printed silk cravat throughout the movie. See the trailer for Paddington 2 below, with Phoenix Buchanan sporting the Cravat Club piece.
With the highest ever rating on Rotten Tomatoes, this movie is most certainly one to watch. Hilarious and heartwarming, Hugh Grant even remarked that his role in the film was his best work, and Paddington 2 was the greatest movie he's ever been in! High praise indeed.
