CHRISTO­PHER ROBIN (G) Let’s hear it for the toys, US, 104 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Flicks -

A gen­tle cel­e­bra­tion of the en­dur­ing ap­peal of the res­i­dents of the Hun­dred Acre Wood. The story be­gins with a grown-up Christo­pher Robin (played by Ewan McGre­gor) do­ing it tough as an adult in 1950s Lon­don. As a dis­tance opens up be­tween Christo­pher and his wife and daugh­ter, old child­hood pals like Win­nie-the-Pooh reap­pear to bring it all back to­gether. Over­all, a lit­tle bit slower and less spec­tac­u­lar than con­tem­po­rary fam­ily films, but a lit­tle more mem­o­rable.
