Goodbye Christopher Robin

"'Goodbye Christopher Robin' digs into the origins and consequences of Milne's mythic Winnie-the-Pooh stories in ways that are charming and ultimately poignant." - Minneapolis Star Tribune

"'Goodbye Christopher Robin' focuses on Pooh creator A.A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his young son (newcomer Will Tilston), whose stuffed animals and an idyllic, rustic retreat provided the foundation for one of children's literature's most enduring figures.

"Emotionally wounded by his service during World War I, Milne wanted to write an antiwar book, but stumbled into the children's project through time spent alone with his child, while his jet-setting wife (Margot Robbie) gallivanted around.

"The actual little boy shared a name with his fictional alter ego, and was thus rather callously used as a promotional gimmick in connection with the books. The only person consistently putting the boy's welfare first is his nanny Olive (Kelly Macdonald), the one source he could truly trust. In that, there's a message here about exploited child stars that resonates well beyond the movie's period between the great wars and seems especially relevant and sobering in light of today's reality-TV culture.

"Exquisitely made by director Simon Curtis, 'Goodbye Christopher Robin' is a genuinely emotional film -- one that explores deeper themes in a simple and understated manner." (NPR)
