A gem of a film.
Being Christopher Robin in the books was infinitely more preferable to living the real life version it seems.
Good performances from all the cast members showing how fragile and brittle relationships were for shell-shocked survivors after 'the War to end all Wars' and the resultant emotional fall-out for families - the Milne family - in particular.

I just liked this movie. A story, great acting, and no asinine special effects.

This was truly a cinematic experience watching this multi-layered story of a father and son. It brought tears to my eyes during the third act to see how the whole story came together to create a miracle of hope during the dark days and despair of war (literally and also referring to the work of this author). This one is a gem and there is still good movies out there that inspire us to the best of humanity and that God is on the throne. I plan to put this Blu-ray on hold again as soon as I return it.

This movie was really good. Good actors all around. The scenery was beautiful. Was nice to know the true story of Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh and how they came to be. The child actor is adorable.

Absolutely heart breaking movie. Haven't cried so much in a while. Acting was spot on and the little boy who plays Christopher Robin is great. The story is so mixed with nostalgia about Winnie the Pooh. Have to admit did ruin Winnie the Pooh for me a bit.

A heart-wrenching story, but so very worth the watch.

The movie was filmed well. The plot was ok. Yes it was unfortunate to see how Christopher Robin grew up. In the end it’s not a movie I wold rush to watch ever again.

Talented author, A.A.Milne served in 2 World Wars and was a victim of severe PtSD. He married a shallow, driven woman who only wanted what was best for her. Sadly, their son, Christopher, was raised in a very difficult family which was the theme of this well-done movie.

The surprisingly sad tale of the real Christopher Robin and how the Winnie the Pooh stories were born, and the permanent impact that they had on his and his father's, A.A. Milne's, lives. We are transported back in time to Britain after "The War to End All Wars," where playwright Milne suffers from what would later be known to be PTSD, and longs for a peaceful life away from the jarring noises of the city. His family moves to an idyllic spot in the country, surrounded by woods. While Milne is soothed by the nature that surrounds him, his no-nonsense wife prefers the glamorous life, and becomes bored and frustrated. Finally she breaks away from her husband and son and returns to London. Soon little Christopher Robin's treasured nanny also must go away, to be with her dying mother. Left to their own devices, father and son begin to create a magical world populated by the boy's stuffed animals: a bear, a piglet, a tiger, and more. Soon this private world will become all too well-known to the rest of the world, and its unexpected impact changes their lives beyond all recognition. A beautiful film; deeply moving, surprising, superbly acted.
