Goodbye Christopher Robin
(2017)

Country: UK

Genre: Biography, Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

After leaving London for the English countryside with his son Christopher Robin, 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" (published 1926) and "The House at Pooh Corner" (1928). The enchanting tales are an instant success, bringing hope and comfort to postwar Britain, but fame takes its toll on the real Christopher Robin, and puts a strain on his relationship with his father.

I was surprised to see the mixed reviews from critics. Well acted, especially by first timer Will Tilston, with gorgeous visuals of the British countryside. A powerful story about the senseless trauma of war and the cruelty of growing up. It also hints at just how much more interesting classic children's characters can be when they exist outside of the imagination-crushing Disney ecosystem.

This is an account on how Winnie the Pooh was created. What made this film outstanding was the filmmaker's use of some of their props were the same that existed at that time; like the bridge where they did their stick racing was the actual bridge. And the rock where they sat upon atop of the hill was a monument (although concealed) dedicated to him. The filmmakers also made the right selection in having Will Tilston playing him as an 8-year-old.
