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.
The untold story of the life of author A A Milne and his son Christopher Robin. The little boy and his toys inspired the well loved stories about Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and friends. But did gobal success come at a cost to the family?
