Disney’s Christopher Robin

Dove Approved for All Ages

Behind me at the screening of Christopher Robin, a small girl would frequently commentate and dissect the film out loud. The film, which deals with an older, more career-driven Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) than the playful and peacekeeping one we know in A.A. Milne's timeless tales, poses a [...]

The film is nicely directed and it is a quality production with nice cinematography and good acting. The actor [...]

Never knowing [...]
