It looks like Goodbye Christopher Robin will be one of the movies hoping for a bit of awards love at the end of the year, telling the true story behind the creation of Winnie The Pooh. Now the trailer for the movie has arrived.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive (Kelly Macdonald), Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?
‘Additional cast includes Stephen Campbell Moore, Alex Lawther, Richard McCabe, Nico Mirallegro, Geraldine Somerville and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The film is directed by Simon Curtis (WOMAN IN GOLD, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN) from a script written by Frank Cottrell-Boyce (RAILWAY MAN, MILLIONS) and Simon Vaughan (“War and Peace”). Damian Jones (ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS: THE MOVIE, THE LADY IN THE VAN) produced with Steve Christian (BELLE), and Curtis and Vaughan also served as executive producers.’
It’ll be in cinemas in September. [Read more…]
