Goodbye Christopher Robin product reviews

This beautifully filmed, poignant story directed by Simon Curtis from a screenplay by Frank Cottrell-Boyce and Simon Vaughan gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children's author A.A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin (Will Tilston). At the end of the First World War, Milne is inspired by his son's toys to create the magical world of Winnie-the-Pooh -- which brings him immediate and enduring celebrity. But the books' international success comes at a cost to the author; his young son and his wife Daphne (Margot Robbie), in this compelling film about fame and family that also starts Kelly Macdonald.

In the last line of the description of this DVD 'Goodbye Christopher Robin' this movie is described as a compelling film and in my most humble and honest opinion that is exactly what this film is. I have literally just finished watching this and had to immediately write the review to share with anyone who reads this how wonderfully touching and honest this film is. A.A. Milne featured in my childhood through so many different avenues; his poem book is a long loved and treasured book that I still own, the pages bent from over use, patiently waiting in the attic ready to share with my daughter . Winnie the Pooh was another much loved favourite of mine; through my childhood and then continued with my own babies. And so with these two reasons in mind, I was simply so interested to watch this movie and learn the history behind the true story.

What I have learnt has blown me away; the links in this movie to the books I treasure were subtle but rang true and have left me looking forward to the years ahead where I can share these books with my daughter and in turn also this DVD when she is old enough. The red balloon, the reason this is... the blue door and how high up the tree it was... the bridge where pooh sticks were raced down the river... If you are already a fan then you will know exactly what I am talking about and if not then perhaps you need to watch this film to discover exactly what I mean! Smile Icon

There is so much to say about this film and yet I am stumbling on words to simply describe it's greatness; the links it made to my own childhood exploring this books, full of happy memories, made my heart feel warm. Yet at the same time I had tears running down my face as the realisation of what others went through with war hit home and how the young child of Christopher Robin faced fame when all he really wanted was his own dad. So much of this film made me so greatful for my own life with my two children and this world we live in! At the same time I was simply amazed learning the story behind Winnie the Pooh and how this wonderful happy tale came from such a special childhood moment for Christopher Robin but also from such a dark place that A.A. Milne was in.

This movie/DVD is a complete ten out of ten for me, it held my attention from start to finish, including watching all of the special features which is something I rarely do! The director (both the movie and the screen play) needs to be given full credit for a believable and true story line that features so many important aspects of not only the creation of Winnie the Pooh but the life of A.A. Milne and the rest of his family. Utter greatness that I am so glad to have watched! I truly recommend it to you all.
