Two of our Young Critic's Circle tell us about Christopher Robin

18 September 2018

As part of our Young Critic's Circle, two of our talented reviewers, Ruby and Daisy Wakefield, tell us what they thought of Christopher Robin.

Christopher Robin is a man who doesn’t spend a lot of time with his family because he is always working and never gets to see them. His daughter, Madeline, had never met him until she was three because he was away in the war. Then he gets a job which leads to her rarely seeing her father and not having someone to look up to apart from her mother. Pooh comes into the movie when he finds himself in London whilst looking for his friends. When back at home, the Hundred Acre Wood. Christopher is spotted by his daughter and disappoints her by leaving straight away. Then Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and Pooh go on another adventure to give back left behind papers with Madeline.

I liked this film because the actors who did the voices sounded alike to the original characters. In it, there were funny moments that made me laugh, mostly it was gloomy Eeyore who was the most comic. I would recommend this to anyone of any age as it is a film that everyone will love no matter how grouchy you are! I love this movie a lot.

Settling into our seats we lapsed into the heart-warming story of Christopher Robin. This new Disney tale is about the well-loved characters Christopher Robin and all his friends. It begins with a work-ridden Christopher barely sparing any time with his family. Then with an unexpected visit from Winnie-the-Pooh, talking about losing all his friends, Christopher returns to the Hundred Acre Wood and all his old toys. It certainly brought on some waterworks!

As Christopher returns to his busy job in London, the left behind bear and co. discover important work papers that Christopher needs at work. Teaming up with Christopher's daughter, Madeline, his friends from Hundred Acre Wood decide to travel to London to give the papers back.

This story ends with a family reunited and the Hundred Acre Wood back to its former glory. I definitely would recommend going to see this!
