If you can get past narcissistic antics of a money-crazed mother, who does not care about her family until money is involved, or show any true compassion for her son at all until he is thought to be dead, then the film Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) is for you. If you can get past the betrayal of a previously unfit father and his use of his own son as a guinea pig for stories, then this film is for you. And if you relish in seeing a child extremely depressed growing up even almost into adulthood, then perhaps you’ll fall in love with the film. It does a splendid job of telling a mostly terrible story in lavish sets and designs, with a story that jumps all over but still forces you to connect with it.
