About Goodbye Christopher Robin
This family-friendly biopic tells the story of the real Christopher Robin, C. R. Milne and the rising success of the Winnie the Pooh books, written by his father. A. A. Milne was a troubled man, suffering from severe PTSD after his return from World War One. The film documents young Christopher Robin's emotional journey as he watches his childhood games being packaged and sold by his father, and finds himself thrust into the spotlight. Unfortunately the film largely brushes over the more complex and interesting aspects of the relationship between father and son, leaving us with a distinct feeling of a missed opportunity.
