Quotes

Christopher Robin Aged 8: [pounds his fists onto the table] I hate her! Sack her and tell her never to come back!
Alan Milne: You ought not to hold your knife and fork like that.
Christopher Robin Aged 8: Why shouldn't I?
Alan Milne: Because, if someone were to fall through the ceiling, they'd come down right there and be impaled on your fork, and then they would bleed out all over your eggs and ruin your breakfast.

REVIEW - GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN

Honestly didn't know what to expect when I went to see this film. As its based (loosely) around the creation of the Winnie The Poo stories I thought it was going to be a children's film but.......

The film itself is actually and surprising very good, touching on the family dynamic of the upper classes during the 1930s to 1940s.

Very stand offish parents who seem to care about their social standing rather than their son (Christopher Robin) and how this impacts on all of their lives.

Looking at how one person can force the hand of another, in this case forcing father and son to actually spend time together and bond.

Lessons can be learnt from this film, no matter how much you work, your children want you.

Thoroughly enjoyable film on many levels.

Rating 10 out of 10
