The story of ex-Army officer-turned-writer AA Milne (Gleeson), and how he turned to children’s literature after the public showed little desire to read his anti-war writings. Curtis handles the awkward but loving father-son relationship beautifully and it’s a competent and credible work, with subtle and intelligent use of animation.

Maurice (Bozo) is a penguin who’s been raised by Natacha, a tigress (Darah). He leads his own team of crime-fighting creatures against evil koala Igor (Darbois) and his baboons. Lush animation and a brisk, unpretentious story make for a cheap but cheerful rumble in the jungle for pre-teens.

When Queen Victoria (Dench) is introduced to a young man from India, Abdul Karim (Fazal), she is charmed when he prostrates himself and kisses her foot: unlikely cross-cultural friendship and Urdu lessons duly ensue. Fazal and Dench are excellent and there’s a surprisingly effective political subtext.
