"Whishaw, still currently best known as the fresh, younger version of Q from Skyfall, is the man now tasked with bringing new voice to the bear. “I resisted a little bit, because I had a bad experience doing this kind of work in the past and I thought I was no good at it. But I was persuaded to go, slightly grudgingly,’ Whishaw tells Baz Bamigboye, admitting that he had “no relationship to Paddington whatsoever, other than that I knew he wore a duffle coat and a hat”. He was eventually convinced however, by the idea that it’ll please his 18-month-old niece."

No idea. 

"Set in contemporary London and starring Ben Whishaw, Lilting tells the story of a Cambodian-Chinese mother mourning the untimely death of her son whose world is suddenly disrupted by the presence of a stranger. We observe the difficulties the two have in trying to communicate and connect without a common language. But through a translator they slowly piece together memories of a man they both loved dearly and realize that while they may not share a language, they are connected in their grief…"
