Goodbye Christopher Robin
Historical Bio/Drama, 2017, UK, 107 min, PG
Director: Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn; Woman in Gold)
Inspired by the True Story
A rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children's author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin )(played by Will Tilston), whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Suffering from PTSD following World War I, writer A.A. Milne starts to spin fanciful yarns about his son's growing collection of stuffed animals. These stories form the basis for "Winnie-the-Pooh" and "The House at Pooh Corner," published respectively in 1926 and 1928. Milne and his family soon become swept up in the instant success of the books, while the enchanting tales bring hope and comfort to the rest of postwar England.
“Goodbye Christopher Robin is an exquisite, beautiful film” -- Mick LaSalle (The San Francisco Gate)
Quote from the director:
“Goodbye Christopher Robin is the story of the writing of Winnie-the-Pooh. So it's not the Winnie-the-Pooh stories, it's the story of the family that created the stories. A.A. Milne, his wife Daphne and their child Christopher Robin. And it's the story of how they became famous on the back of the stories, and the impact that had on their lives.” - Simon Curtis
