London playwright Alan Alexander Milne (Donald Glynon) returns home after the end of the First World War. He was able to recover from injury, but not from mental trauma. Alan, whom close people call Blue, in any sharp sound shots and shots. To calm the nerves, the writer and his wife Daphne (Margot Robbie) and a small son Christopher Robin (Will Tilston) moves to nature, to a cottage on the outskirts of the forest. There, Milne hopes to write a book about the dangers of wars. But when the wife returns to London, and the servants go on vacation, Blu for the first time remains alone with her son. And he begins with the boy to invent fabulous stories that will soon become books about Winnie the Pooh.

A new picture of a British director Simon Curtis ("7 days and nights with Marilyn") Tells the story of one of the most beloved children's books in the whole history of mankind. However, this is by no means the mimicious baiopik, to which it is necessary to go with children and adore to be touched by relatives. "Winnie the Pooh" gave joy to millions of readers - but not to the one who composed the book, and not to whom it was written. On the contrary, the good book about the revived toys destroyed the Milnov family, which had only just recovered from the nightmare of the world war.

How could this happen? Very simple. Milna went on the occasion of the PR-car, unwound, when "Winnie the Pooh" became a bestseller. Alan and Daphne turned their son into an exhibit. They took him around the world, photographed in touching poses, forced to speak in public and tell how he came up with a name for his teddy bear. The children of the whole Western world envied Christopher Robin, and he hated it when they called him (the family called him the family nickname Billy Moon), and he dreamed that he was finally left alone. He also wanted to spend more time with his parents and his beloved nanny.

Unfortunately for Christopher, his suffering did not end when Milne the elder stopped writing books about his son and Pooh. The son of the writer lived to a very old age, but for the whole world he remained "little Christopher Robin". This irritated him so much that he distanced himself from his father's heritage and did not use the fabulous money that his Winnie-the-Pooh earned for his family. Relations with the parents of Milna Jr. were worse than those of the heroes of many modern Hollywood dramas, which seem to compete, who have "ancestors" worse.

This is the third joint film by Donal Gleeson and Kelly McDonald, as well as the second joint film by Donal Gleeson and Margot Robbie

"Good-bye, Christopher Robin" tells this sad and instructive story about why young children should not be involved in adult affairs. Kids do not want fame - they want love and care. They do not want to give interviews - they want to play with their parents and peers. And they least want to be teased all their life because of the fact that the pope gloriously earned on their childhood.

Mimicry, of course, in the film, too. Scenes in which Blue and Billy invent fairy tales are filmed as a touching adventure in a magical forest. These are the moments for which parents become parents. But the happiness of the heroes is short-lived. It is framed by the post-war anguish of Blue before the composition of "Winnie the Pooh" and the suffering of Billy after the publication of the book. The boy seems to inherit the pain that his father brought from the war, and Winnie-the-Pooh becomes the executor of Milnov. Who knew that a teddy bear has a license of a notary!

Margot Robbie is only five years older than Alex Lautner, who played the adult son of her heroine

The picture is built around Donal Gleeson and Will Tilston (in the end of the tape he replaces Alex Loter, who played the matured Christopher), but not only are they remembered in it. Margot Robbie created an intriguing image of a woman in whom a sincere love for her son and her husband, a capricious narcissism of secular beauty and the determination and immediacy of the Paleme Woodhouse heroines (remember the cycle about Jeeves and Worcester) miraculously get along. Daphne's contradictoriness and unbalance coupled with Robbie's charisma turned the heroine from an appendix to the characters in the screen heavyweight. Robbie dominates every scene with her participation - if only because you never know how Daphne will manifest himself in this or that situation. On the contrary, Blue and Billy behave more or less monotonously, like a closed man and an open child.

If Robbie turns out to be a Joker tape, then Kelly McDonald in the role of Scottish nanny Olivia serves as Butler Alfred. Unlike his primitive employers, the simple-minded and devout Olivia does not hesitate to show love for the baby, and she becomes for Billy a spiritual support and light at the end of the tunnel. This is not an exaggeration of the creators of the film. Judging by the recollections of Christopher Robin and by the way his relations with relatives were formed, he loved his nanny as a child more than his mother. And, perhaps, stronger than the father.

In general, "Good-bye, Christopher Robin" is not only a banyopic about Milne, but also a portrait of a traditional British wealthy family compared to her servants. One is easier to offer the child fame and money, others - warmth, and it is clear from the film that the baby prefers. Nevertheless, British traditions remain and capture other countries, including Russia. This at the same time frightens and makes the picture of Curtis topical.

However, the relevance of the material is perfectly combined in the film with a convincing, albeit slightly "open" re-creation of Britain between world wars. Moving viewers into the past is a favorite pastime for English filmmakers, and Curtis's team coped with it perfectly. Cars, outfits, interiors, cooking ... And even bookstores of the era. The director did everything to make the audience feel the spirit of the times and that the sad history of "Winnie the Pooh" had beautiful sides. But, of course, the most attractive part of the tape is not man-made beauty, but the leading actors and the delightful natural landscapes of South England.

Is it an outstanding film? No. What he is trying to convey, you can read in Wikipedia, and you can not say that the narrative of the painting is so deep and highly artistic that Curtis turned real events into a movie masterpiece. However, this expressive, taking on the soul of the canvas, and it should pay attention to those who go to the movies for the sake of quiet tapes, and not loud blockbusters.

From November 23 to the cinema.
