Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Rated PG

 The film follows the life of A.A. Milne as he creates the stories behind Winnie-the-Pooh. Starring Vicki Pepperdine, Margot Robbie, Domhnall Gleeson.

I thought this was a wonderful, behind-the-scenes portrayal of Milne’s life as he created the stories of Winnie-the-Pooh. There are several story lines running throughout the film, including: Milne’s suffering from PTSD (long before it was diagnosed); the popularity of his stories and how his son was thrust into the spotlight at a young age (and how unprepared they were to attain celebrity status); the problems their family faced. The Milnes were not an idyllic family, and this movie reveals that in a truthful way. What makes this film shine, though, is Tilston as the young Christopher Robin. He embodied the young imaginative heart that A.A. Milne put in his books.  This film is worth the watch.
