A rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children's author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive, 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?Written by

Winnie and the other members of the "stuffed" family are no longer at the 42nd Street library. If you are visiting NYC, stop by the the Help Desk at the main entrance and they will happily tell you which branch you may "visit" them. See more »
In the station there was a poster for British Railways. BR did not exist until 1948. CR would have joined up before war ended in 1945. See more »
You know what writing a book against war is like? It's like writing a book against Wednesdays. Wednesdays... are a fact of life, and if you don't like them, you could just stay in bed, but you can't stop them because Wednesdays are coming and if today isn't actually a Wednesday it soon will be.

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.
