It changes how you view winnie the pooh. The story is wonderful and the acting of the child is very engaging. What is strange is that everyone ages on screen except Margot Robbie who never looks like a mother and the character never acts as one. I am not sure if she put in her contract you can't make me look older, or the make up person didn't know what they were doing. Either way the parents are very self absorbed and cold. The bonus material says that is how people were at the times, and perhaps after a war you are cold and selfish. I pray I never find out.

Unfortunately, the DVD I have stopped mid movie, but I really enjoyed this film. It was so much fun learning about the origins of the book's characters and inspirations. NTM, the life story of the author A.A. Milne. My friend stated the young actor really favored Christopher Robin in the Disney flicks.

This was a average film.
I was surprised how the effect of the popular book had on real Christopher. 😞

Honestly, I didn't think I would like it, but after watching it, it ended up on my top movies list. Incredible!

So-so stolid Brit film, did this movie show A.A. took C.R. to a London zoo and met the bear? Check out the real story of Winnie the Pooh, named after Winnipeg of Canada: A Bear named Winnie, starring M. Fassbender and other Canadian actors.

I found this so disappointing. I guess I shouldn't read autobiographies. I am only glad that Christopher Milne is already gone and so isn't here to be upset by this movie. He wrote in his autobiography about how much he loved his father and mother (although his mother could be quite autocratic and eccentric) and how wonderful his childhood was. He loved the attention the Pooh books brought him, though he admitted he had had enough of the to-do. He disliked, as a child and as an adult, being confused with Christopher Robin but regarded it as a fact of his life that could not be changed. He of course was teased about it when he went to school and regretted a few things he said as a teenager, as we all have. As for not taking any money, as the film informs us at the end, Christopher Milne made sure that his mother had the money for her care for the rest of her life. I think a much more accurate and kinder film could have been made that would have been more interesting altogether.

When you think of Winnie the Pooh you don't think of pain and suffering as the son of the writer. This was a very insightful movie.

Interesting look at how a beloved children's classic came about. It was frustrating at times to see the family dynamics with a 21st century perspective (the parents seemed cold and indifferent, caught up in their celebrity world) but from what I read, this story is based on a true account of the child's perspective. Watch the extras for footage of the real Christopher Robin doing promotional work--chilling.
