Last week I had the amazing opportunity to check out a screening of Paddington movie. This was no ordinary screening, but it included a little Q&A with the beautiful Nicole Kidman. The Moms put together a great morning. Firsts thing is first, Nicole Kidman is amazingly beautiful. Not only was she 30 minutes early (unheard off in Hollywood) but she was very chatty and charming. I didn’t expect her to be so candid to the questions asked by the other moms in the room.
I loved how she expressed herself, and how dedicated she is to her children. She mentioned that the best feeling was hearing a theater full of children laughing. I have to admit she won me over. During the Q&A she was asked what books she reads to her children at night, and her reply was the classics like Good Night Moon, but she also mentioned how her husband tries to get rid of the princess books. And we learned that her kids favorite food is pasta, with cheese, no sauce!
Nicole was and is promoting her new film Paddington, in which she plays the villain, who is trying to hunt Paddington. Paddington is a rare type of bear from South America that loves marmalade. After the loss of a family member the bear travels to London, where he has to find a family to live with. Not only does he have to find a family, he also has to learn the human way of doing things. When he finds the family, he has to adjust to live with all the different personalities in the family, like an embarrassed teenager and a creative boy.
This movie is defenitely for the whole family. It is beyond funny and has a beautiful message. There many laugh out loud moments like the first time Paddington uses the bathroom. Also sad moments like when he leaves his home. All in all it is just beautifully written and acted. The characters are very relatable and really real. I think everyone should go see this movie, it is amazingly funny and very much a good time for every member of the family.
