But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family? Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures

Trivia

Christopher stated in his biography that "Shrapnel put him out of action, just when (as he wrote later) he needed such a happenstance the most. (Small shards of the metal were left embedded in his brain, where they remained undetected for nearly fifty years.)." See more »

Goofs

In the scene at the station when Christoper Robin is leaving for the army, there is a map of Southern England on the wall behind them.

During the war, all maps and signs were removed from public places, as these could have aided the enemy. See more »

Quotes

Christopher Robin Aged 8: Well... you see, after the war there was so much sadness... that hardly anyone could remember what happines was like. Then Winnie the Pooh came along and he was like a tap. You just turned it on and happines came out.
Christopher Robin Aged 8: But I'm not Christopher Robin, really. I'm Billy Moon.

A wonderful film
3 October 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

This a lovely film focusing on the relationship between A.A Milne and his son, Christopher Robin and how together they became sucked into the world of Winnie the Pooh.

With good performances from all this is a wonderful film, all about lost innocence and the importance of family. We are left with the question about whether Milne really did his son too many favours by placing him in a children's book after all.

Special mention must go to Will Tilston, who plays the young Christopher Robin so beautifully.

I hope this film goes onto wider acclaim, because I thought it was marvellous.
