    Anyone with fond memories of the books or a dusty Paddington Bear sitting on a shelf in their childhood bedroom can rest easy: this first-ever movie take on Peru’s furriest export is a cuddly, thoughtful triumph. But not too cuddly. The beauty of...

    If you go down to the woods today… you’ll find A-listers dressed like ‘Game of Thrones’ extras belting out showtunes. ‘Into the Woods’, the 1987 fairytale mash-up musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, has fallen under Disney’s spell, getti...
