First Trailer for 'Goodbye Christopher Robin' with Domhnall Gleeson
"Hardly anyone could remember what happiness was like. But something happened that changed all that." Fox Searchlight has unveiled the first trailer for the film Goodbye Christopher Robin, telling the true story of beloved children's author A. A. Milne, as played by Domhnall Gleeson in the film. Set in England in the early 1900s, the story is all about how Milne came up with Winnie the Pooh, inspired by his son Christopher Robin and his stuffed animals. Along with Gleeson, the cast includes Margot Robbie as Daphne Milne, Will Tilston as C.R., plus Kelly Macdonald, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Stephen Campbell Moore. This seems to be a lovely relief from the heaviness of the world, focusing on the good things and the happy things that we can appreciate. There's some cool shots in this, hopefully it's a fine film.
