Goodbye Christopher Robin gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin (Will Tilston), whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), 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? [Fox Searchlight]
Insider’s tip: “A witty and touching father-son tale. And at its centre: a startling debut from Will Tilston, whose compelling performance ensures its emotional moments land successfully” (Jonathan Pile, Empire). James Mottram, Total Film: “An engrossing biopic. More than just another author/creation story, Curtis’ film has things to say about celebrity, wartime and family.” Roger Moore, Movie Nation: “The film manages to move and touch us, revealing that the books are timeless due to their exquisite, English craftsmanship, their wit and warmth.”
