Story: Bio-drama directed by Simon Curtis based on the creation of the character Winnie the Pooh. The story centers on the relationship between the beloved children’s author 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?
Best Quotes from Trailer:
Olive: [voice over] Once upon a time there was a great war that brought so much sadness to so many people, hardly anyone could remember what happiness was like. But something happened that changed all that. It helped us to believe in the good things, the fun things, and a world full of imagination. And then just like a tap you turned on happiness came pouring out.
