Goodbye Christopher Robin

Directed by London-born filmmaker Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn), with a brilliantly-constructed script by UK screenwriters Simon Vaughan and Frank Cottrell-Boyce, this delightful film effortlessly blends together more challenging themes with a hopeful childlike wonder. Starring British actors Kelly Macdonald, Alex Lawther and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, it’s co-produced by GasWorks Media, DJ Films and London-based Mania Entertainment.





Writer A.A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) leaves London for the English countryside, beginning to pen stories about the growing collection of stuffed animals belonging to his son (Will Tilston / Alex Lawther), forming the basis for "Winnie-the-Pooh" and "The House at Pooh Corner," published in 1926 and 1928, respectively. While Milne and his family are swept up in the near immediate success of the books, the sweet and endearing tales bring a sense of hope to post-war Britain.
