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?
Being a Disney fan, I was destined to see this move and I was floored by the true story behind yet another Disney star.
My immediate recollections revolved around the father, who seemed very pleased when the world revolved around him. Selfish is the first word that comes to mind. And very dislikable, until he develops and interest in his son, sho ignites his creativity to pen Winnie-the-Pooh. The mother was just as selfish and returns for a performance as a mother that walls short in both substance and stamina. If I remember correctly, their selfishness bubbles over and everything turns out okay. Unbelievable and that’s probably why I can’t remember the canned ending.
