Trivia

Director Simon Curtis mentions at 0:29:31 in the director-screenwriter DVD commentary "And this enclosure, again, is accurate to the period, but now is unused at London Zoo. So you won't be surprised to hear that this bear actually is in Pasadena, California, and we had to use film magic to insert it into this scene." Black bear footage is credited to Greenscreen Animals in the on-screen ending credits. 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 »

Quotes

Daphne Milne: I you don't think about a thing, then it ceases to exist. It's true, I read about it. It's all in Plato. It's called philosophy.
Alan Milne: Oh, philosophy. Well, I hope you know you're laughing at Plato.
Daphne Milne: Blue, life is full of frightful things. The great thing is to find something to be happy about and stick to that.

Touching story reminding us what life is all about...
24 October 2017 | by txbecksSee all my reviews

Goodbye Christopher Robin touched me personally and helped me to remember what life is really about. It touches on the trauma that can affect those closest to us. It shows how hard and long those times can affect our lives and those around us. The casting and acting was spot on for me. I could relate to the characters and could relate to their situation.

It reminded me in some ways of "Finding Mr Banks", but touched me more deeply. There are movies you go to watch to escape the real world. This was a movie that helped me to remember what is important in this world and feel better for it.

It was touching, heart breaking and had times that all parents can relate to. In the end it showed me how important it is to spend time with your children.

It is a movie I will be adding to my collection.
