Moore, Vicki Pep­per­dine The John Lewis com­mer­cial has come early this year. Cur­tis’s take on the cre­ation of Win­nie the Pooh ar­rives soaked in the same aes­thetic that drives that Christ­mas reg­u­lar. Never has so much dap­pled light fallen so grace­fully on so many fallen leaves. Gleeson con­vinces as a shell-shocked AA Milne. Lawther is touch­ing as his ex­ploited son (the real Christo­pher). But the over­pow­er­ing sense of idyll works against the grim­mer un­der­cur­rents. PG cert, gen re­lease, 109 min DC
