Along with his mother Daphne, and his nanny Olive (Kelly Macdonald), Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?
Q-tips say: We liked this movie. ‘Winnie the Pooh’ has always been a figurement of my childhood. ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’ tells us about the enchanting story of how the most beloved children’s book ever written came to life from A.A. Milne’s recovery from serving in WWI to the growing relationship he has with his son upon trying to write something as form of inspiration. What we can say from this story overall; is that such a creation inspired from the world of childhood imagination can bring a great certainty of happiness and light when darkness as chaos overshadows the world when war breaks out. It’s also an endearing tale of how one’s creation defines the life of such an individual like A.A. Milne’s son, who became too much of a child celebrity, it took away from what he knew of the world, even harder when the boy continued to grow up.
