This film is a wonderful look at Christopher Robin’s life after his childhood and long after he has even thought of his friends from The Hundred Acre Woods. All about adulthood and it’s responsibilities.
“Doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something”
Winnie The Pooh, Christopher Robin (Forster, 2018)
Starting off with Christopher as a child saying goodbye to Pooh and the others as he is sent to Boarding School is a real tear-jerker for someone who grew up with Winnie the Pooh stories. You can’t help feeling sorry for him and the gang as they say their farewells. And as an adult now watching this film you also feel for Christopher as you realise some of the hardships he shall likely have to face growing up.
But don’t worry. This is a sad part of the story that has to be told to understand the story development and get to the happy parts. With some very happy parts coming when Pooh seeks Christopher out to help him find his lost friends.. A lovely adventure that in the end brings them back together and helps them both from being lost.
Overall this film is a wonderful heartfelt tale for all ages to enjoy about the importance of fun, friendship and family. With a great new style of the realistic CG animated character of The Hundred Acre Woods you are brought back to the stories and this is a great film to see.
