Goodbye Christopher Robin

  • slideshow_large


The story of A. A. Milne, the celebrated children’s creator of Winnie the Pooh, and his relationship with his young son, Christopher Robin, who, alongside his toys was the unwitting inspiration for one of the most successful children stories ever created.
Set in England between the World Wars, the story focuses on the young Christopher Robin. A painfully lonely little boy, an only child with little to no relationship with his successful socialite parents, who becomes an overnight international star due to the immense success of his father’s books. Christopher possesses great vulnerability and deep pain masked by a wonderful and wild imagination.
A touching account of a young boy growing up in the shadow of his own fame.
