"Christopher Robin" Movie Review

by Sheryl Wall

Special coupon for Dinuba Platinum Theatre at the end of this review.

Christopher Robin starring Ewan McGregor focuses on Christopher from the Winnie the Pooh books and cartoons as an adult. However, they briefly go through his childhood to set the tone for the story. He has gone to boarding school after saying goodbye to Pooh and his friends and after that fought in the war. Christopher Robin is now grown and married and has a daughter named Madeline. He has forgotten about Pooh and the Hundred Acre Woods. He is focused on his job at a luggage company and expects his daughter to busy herself with school. He has forgotten what it is like to have fun. His family has gone to his childhood cottage for vacation while he stayed home to work. His neighbor continues to ask him over for a game night, and the answer is always no. He is overworked but sees work as coming before anything else. Madeline is sad she doesn't get to spend more time with her dad.

However, one day while his family is away Pooh shows up in London near by Christopher Robin's home. Pooh is unable to find all his friends in the hundred acre woods and needs his friends help. Pooh found a magical door that led him to a garden in London where he happened upon Christopher Robin. Though Christopher Robin is reluctant to help Pooh finally Pooh convinces him to help find their friends. He hopes to make a quick trip and go straight back to work. However, in the adventure he discovers what is most important in life and once again learns how to have fun with his childhood friends from the Hundred Acre Woods.

Winnie the Pooh has always been one of my favorite childhood stories. I thoroughly enjoyed this new Pooh adventure and reliving the classic stories. I enjoyed the new take on Pooh yet hearing the familiar lines and personalities. It's a must see for everyone whether you enjoyed Pooh as a child or not. This is a movie I will have to own someday.

Christopher Robin is playing at Dinuba Platinum Theatres 6 and showtimes can be found on their website. Platinum Theaters Dinuba 6 now proudly presents digital quality films in 2-D and 3-D with 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound to maximize your movie experience.
