    3 1/2 stars: “Goodbye Christopher Robin” is not a child’s tale, but is about the inspirations that led to the creation of “Winnie the Pooh” and the upbringing of Christopher, lovely called Billie Moon. Impressive acting by all, including Will Tilston, who plays 8 year old Christopher, A.A. Milne, (Domhnall Gleeson), mother Daphne (Margot Robbie) and Nanny Olive (Kelly MacDonald). This period piece with great costumes and cinematography captures the elements that led to Christopher’s stardom, reminiscent of the Dionne quintuplets. Post war England and the world needed a diversion for the drudgery and sadness that permeated society. A.A. Milne, known as Blue, to his friends, needed to escape his demons and moved his family to the idyllic countryside. Blue had the opportunity to bond with his son and enter into Billie Moon’s fantasy world of Winnie, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger. This is a cautionary tale of war, parenthood and fame, which sparked my interest and attention. Only Olive knew how to shower Billy Moon with love. A.A. Milne survived WW1 but suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. Socialite, Daphne, was self-absorbed and was unclear of the concept of motherhood. Deep down they loved their son but did not always know how to show it. It is only after Christopher goes off to fight in WWll that his parents actually looked back to reflect.
