This biopic on A. A. Milne, creator of the beloved Winnie the Pooh character, follows the author (played by Domhnall Gleeson) through post-war trauma, the birth of his son Christopher Robin (who would inspire Pooh’s human friend and become an instant celebrity), and subsequent fame with the Pooh books.
It also provides an insight into the famous – and apparently quite dysfunctional – Milne family, whose parenting skills could be called into question.
Neither Milne, his wife (Margot Robbie), nor his son come across as particularly likeable (possibly thanks to the consummate performances from everyone, especially Robbie), but that’s far from the point; Goodbye Christopher Robin is about embracing your childhood, because before you know it, it’ll be all over.
