very strong sense of tone. i loved the stillness of everything and how the film sort of spills into itself as the cutting and music become more aggressive. lead actress did great. a serve!
i was invested right from the first scene, but then... SALLY HAWKINS appears out of nowhere and i thought, wow, there's no way this can get any better... but THEN... NICOLE KIDMAN sashays onto the screen with a blond BOWL CUT... and that was the moment i realized that paddington is peak cinema.
