A film about inspiration, hope, love, and escape as imagination comes true!
25 October 2017 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

All of us being kids at one time or another remember liking "Winnie the Pooh", so it was nice to see a film about the background and historical start of how it came about from author A.A. Milne. This picture does a good job of showing how A.A.'s son Cristopher Robin had a collection of toys and this helped him inspire the need to write a series of children's books and create characters based on toys that his son C.R. had. The film shows this as a compelling journey of struggle, doubt, and wonder, yet it's a travel that's all worth it once the creation of books all loved by children and all as they have provided hope and courage. As it was an important time to bring hope and peace to England after the first world war. C.R. is also attached to his nanny seeing love as it's a break from his over bearing and tough loving harsh over protective mom Daphne(Margot Robbie). Overall this film is touching an emotional and inspirational journey of hope and a loving creation achievement for all children as it was a good historical moment in our pop culture.
