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.

Goodbye Christopher Robin tells the incredible true story of the author behind the memorable Winnie-the-Pooh stories and his son, Christopher Robin. His books gave people happiness and enjoyment in the sadness around the world after the first World War but it also pushed his son and his childhood toys into the spotlight. This movie was a fantastic watch from start to finish and was a wild ride for the emotions with great acting from the main characters.

I really enjoyed this movie - beautiful scenery, and a compelling story, that sends you on an Internet chase to find out how accurate it is.

While I enjoyed watching this movie, I was troubled with the narcissitic way the parents treated Christopher. What an unstable household he grew up in except for love and care of his nanny. I will definetely be viewing the Winnie the Pooh books quite differently now.

the love and warmth among Pooh and his friends was not much a part of young Milne's Edwardian childhood. his mother played with voices for the stuffed animals but then she disappeared for visits away from the country quiet that his father needed to work. the Nanny was the mainstay of his young life.

this is not the Disney version of Christopher Robin......
