SOONER OR LATER, YOUR PAST CATCHES UP TO YOU.
When Christopher Robin grows up, he goes to London to work for a luggage firm; even though he has a wife and a daughter his life is focused on work… until he meets Pooh again. Not to be confused with the A.A. Milne biography Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017), this is a fantasy about the adult Christopher finding his way back to the happiness of his childhood. Aimed primarily at children, the film has a tinge of sadness (evident in its color palette) that might put them off, but there’s also plenty of adventure. A handsome production, with endearing performances by Ewan McGregor and Jim Cummings.
