I like to go to movies that just plain make me feel good……and today I did just that! It was a rainy morning – we needed it, so this is not a complaint by any means – so, seeing the characters in this movie was a welcome warm tug at the old heart strings! Christopher Robin brought all the Pooh characters to life – literally – for a wonderful adventure and valuable life lesson.
As the movie opens, we see Pooh and all his friends saying goodbye to young Christopher Robin, who is being sent to boarding school by his parents and he won’t be able to visit 100-acre woods any more. Ewan McGregor was amazing as the adult Christopher Robin. Married with a young daughter, Christopher has gotten wrapped up in work and being an adult with adult responsibilities and lost touch with his family and his inner child…….until one day, Pooh comes looking for him to get him to help him find his lost friends!
The movie is heart warming, funny, fun, and sends a powerful message – don’t ever forget what and who is most important in our life! It is meant to be a children’s story presented by Disney…….but, I think every adult needs to see it and take heed to the underlining lesson for us all!
I do love movies like this and this one didn’t disappoint, one bit! I rate it a solid A++ and highly recommend it!
