Goodbye Christopher Robin Reviews

September 22, 2017

No one's going to accuse Goodbye Christopher Robin of subtlety or of rewriting the biopic rules, but it does dare to go darker than most films like it.

Two tips for all who see the film: Brush up on the books (and also Milne's beloved poem "Vespers") before going, in order to appreciate all the inside references, and pack your hankies. You'll need 'em.
