Movie Review: Christopher Robin, directed by Marc Forster

(Four Stars)

“I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I’ve been.”

Another retrospective on a childhood fantasy, in this case from the perspective of Winnie the Pooh’s friend, Christopher Robin, grown, married, a father, and well into a mid-life crisis.

“Your life is happening now, Right in front of you.”

Apt to be enjoyed by adults more than children. Unlike the Calvin and Hobbs approach, other people see and hear Christopher’s moving and talking. Piglet and Eeyore are perfect; Pooh and Tigger less so.

“Christopher Robin, what’s your favorite day?” “Today.”

  1. We loved Winnie the Pooh stories, straight and Disney versions, with all the kids. I think the adult dialogue in the Disney version helped my kids learn to talk and think – they’re more complex stories than you realize. Looking back, Tigger getting so many things crooked actually helped. I’m wondering if this movie will add to or detract from that experience.
