This historical drama details the relationship between children's author A.A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin (played at various ages by Will Tilston and Alex Lawther), which was changed forever when Milne used his child and his stuffed animals as inspirations for the Winnie the Pooh stories. As the fanciful tales bring hope to England in the wake of World War I, the family deal with fame and unwanted attention. Directed by Simon Curtis. Margot Robbie, Kelly MacDonald, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge co-star.

"[A] honey-hued but brittle-edged drama about the English author A.A. Milne and the emotional price he paid for his most enduring literary creation." - 10/12/2017 Los Angeles Times
