Goodbye Christopher Robin

Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017)

Genre: Biography, Family Film, History

I was excited to see this biography film about the life of the author A.A.Milne who created Winnie the Pooh ๐Ÿ™‚ . I had expected this to be similar to โ€œSaving Mr. Banksโ€ which was an endearing film and was also about the author of a famous literary character. However, I tried not to judge this film on that and enjoyed this tale throughout ๐Ÿ™‚ . The scenery and costumes were great and I did feel captivated by their world ๐Ÿ˜€ . The acting was superb and I believed every single character especially Christopher Robin (Will Tilston) who was fabulous ๐Ÿ˜€ . The story throws to you straight into the worse part of this story at the beginning which leaves you on an edge of sorrow as you watch the rest (until the film catches back up with itself in the timeline). I loved the scene in the forest with Alan (Domhnall Gleeson) and Christopher Robin as his imagination with the snow was great ๐Ÿ™‚ . I even liked the post traumatic stress disorder Milne was suffering appear in the movie as it helped us understand his character more. Daphne (Margot Robbie) was hard to understand and she became my least favourite character. The film did not shy away from the hard issues Christopher endured and the narrative was very enlightening. I never knew that he had to go through this and found the film had more of a depressive feel than heart-warming. Though, during the World War 2 section I completely felt for Milne and it was a rather sad scene (when you watch you will know ๐Ÿ˜› ). This is an overall, great movie that is worth the watch but this maybe more suited to adults than for the whole family ๐Ÿ™‚ . Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
