This was an ok film. I was hoping for better, but an interesting story about the creation of Winnie The Pooh.
It's the chemistry between Domhnall Gleeson and newcomer Will Tilston, as the awkwardly matched father and son, that makes the movie more than a mélange of inept parenting and Tigger too.
Goodbye Christopher Robin doesn’t just lack authenticity, it appears to scorn it.
No one’s going to accuse Goodbye Christopher Robin of subtlety or of rewriting the biopic rules, but it does dare to go darker than most films like it.

Did You Know?
- Margot Robbie and Domhnall Gleeson's second film together. They previously appeared in the Richard Curtis film About Time (2013).
- When Christopher Robin visits London Zoo (in 1928), he watches penguins swimming past a viewing dome set into the side of their enclosure, known as Penguin Beach. This wasn't built until 2011. In the director-screenwriter DVD commentary at 0:28:24 director Simon Curtis mentions "And we cut to these shots where it's actually the real London Zoo at Regent's Park. And this window, this circular window is apparently accurate to the interwar years." An underwater, flat, circular window may have predated World War II, even though an underwater, three dimensional, spherical window did not.
