A behind-the-scenes look at the life of author A.A. Milne and the creation of the Winnie the Pooh stories, inspired by his son C.R. Milne.
The adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh may have captured the hearts of children for almost a century, but it’s the fascinating, moving story behind this honey-loving bear that steals the spotlight in Goodbye Christopher Robin.
After the Great War, a shell-shocked A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) is keen to write, and to “do something worthwhile”. His days spent with his young son, Christopher Robin (Will Tilston), divert him towards children’s literature – and it’s his son’s collection of toys that inspires the magical world of Pooh Bear and friends.
C. R. Milne and family, including his mother, Daphne (Margot Robbie), and nanny, Olive (Kelly Macdonald), are swept up in the international success of the books, but the fame it brings comes at a price.
