Goodbye Christopher Robin Synopsis

Synopsis from Fox Searchlight Pictures – Goodbye Christopher Robin gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin (Will TIlston), whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie-the-Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive (Kelly Macdonald), Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?

Q&A with Kelly Macdonald who plays Nanny Olive

Christopher Robin’s had a close bond with nanny OIive, played by Macdonald. Here Macdonald discusses the pair’s unique relationship, playing period drama and crying at the film’s first screening.

What appealed to you about the story?

It’s refreshing. It’s an interesting story. People want to be entertained. It’s a more mellow version of what is on screen at the moment. It’s gentle.

Did you read Winnie the Pooh as a child?

Not when I was a child. It took me getting this part to read AA Milne’s work. I knew the name of the author of Winnie the Pooh. I hadn’t explored him as a writer. I think he was immensely talented. It was the humour that really stuck with me, his way with words. It was very simple writing which is quite often dismissed because people think it is easy. It’s not. He uses very few words in such a precise funny way.

Is it fair to say that Olive was the only constant presence in Christopher Robin’s life?

Yeah, she was his security blanket I think. She was the person who loved him and held him, the person he could turn to.

Could you imagine handing your own children to a nanny like the Milnes did?

It wasn’t hard for me to imagine because I’ve read a lot of other biographies of people around that time. It’s a very English tradition. At that time, it was not out of the ordinary at all. All of the Milne’s friends of the same age with children would be doing exactly the same thing. There only difference was their son was thrust into spotlight in a way that I don’t think anyone could have foreseen. It was the right time, right place kind of thing. I think Daphne (Margot Robbie) was a genius at PR. The branding! She wouldn’t have known what she was doing but she was a genius at it.

How do you balance your own career with raising your children?

It’s not complicated. I have had a particularly busy time of it. I’ve known when I’ve been working on a film or TV show what I’ll be going on to next. They’ve not overlapped, I’ve had time in between. It’s just what I do for my job.

There’s been a lot of tears during Christopher Robin Screenings. Did you cry?

I got quite tearful at the first screening. I don’t watch myself and get so moved by my performance. But I can remove myself enough that a story can move me. In Goodbye Christopher Robin, there is a moment where you see Daphne at the end of the film. She’s very buttoned up but you see her heart. You see all this emotion in this beautiful performance that Margot gives. That really broke me up when I saw it the first time.

    I used to enjoy Tigger’s free spirit. He used to always think he was helping but would often be making things worse. He was such a funny character that any child could enjoy. Winnie the Pooh was so much better than a lot of the silly shows they are coming up with today and they are the sorts of stories that are remembered through generations.

    My Mother always referred to a little poem when I was reluctant to say my prayers. She would say “You know Christopher Robin with Winnie the Pooh he always says his prayers”. “Christopher Robin is saying his prayers” I can’t remember the poem now but if it was good enough for him it was for me.

    My first winner the pooh hardcover book from my uncle when I was little I still had the book up until a few years ago I thought It was great getting my own special book

    I decorated my babies nurseries in a Winnie the Pooh theme and their first book was Winnie the Pooh. My favourite memory is reading Winnie the Pooh to them while I was feeding them in the rocking chair in the nursery.

    I love the way Pooh views the world and his words of wisdom touch my heart. My favourite Winnie the Pooh quote is “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think”

    Maybe not a *favourite* memory, but my most memorable Winnie The Pooh memory is one episode they went under the bed into a whole other world, I think full of discarded items that had been thrown under the bed while cleaning up. And they were captured and it was this whole drama. And so much darker in my memory than an average Winnie the Pooh story. But after that I was terrified that if I went under my bed I’d fall into another dimension and be kidnapped by random lost toys. 😂

    Winnie the Pooh was loved by us all,
    In my son’s nursery he was all over the wall,
    His favourite stuffed toy was Tigger,
    Gave them to his sister when he got bigger,
    She loved the books, Dvds, and stuffed toys,
    Winnie the Pooh has given us much joy!

    When Winnie the Pooh visits Rabbit and overstays his welcome when he finds himself too full of honey to squeeze all the way back through the door

    My favourite memory of Winnie The Pooh is a little different from a book or movie recollection.
    When I was pregnant with my first child, I bought an adorable little Pooh bear hoodie for the baby. It was so tiny and cute. When my daughter was born, I loved dressing her up, and she looked so adorable in her Winnie the Pooh hoodie. 🙂 I’m sure that there is photographic evidence of it somewhere L)

    Being given a Winnie the Pooh cookbook. I still use it – it makes the BEST gingerbread men. Found a second copy to gift to my children when they get older.

    Being old enough to read them by myself – I was so proud! I am 65 now and I still have my copies and they still make me smile!

    Oh that’s impossible to choose. My love of Winnie the Pooh started when my Dad gave me the book and was so strong I named my son after Christopher Robin.

    My first memory was when my daughter was born, I started reading to her the Winnie Pooh books. Although she didn’t understand, she has loved Winnie since then.

    Earliest memory for anyone that cares,
    Christopher Robins saying his prayers.
    ‘Vespers’ was part of my bed time routine,
    along came my own children and part of their scene.
    Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh,
    part of my family, so that name will do,
    For my youngest son Christopher Robin…
    because Winnie the Pooh just would not do!

    My daughter receiving a Pooh doll which talked and giggled his funny laugh, that’s all we’d hear all day long as she kept pressing the button on Pooh’s toe 😊

    I’ve always loved Winnie the Pooh and so have all my kids. My 5yo daughter has an Eeyore teddy that she’s had since the day she was born and she’s never slept a night without him (nor will she… :/) But my favourite memory was when she came home from kindy and said…..
    Mum, Why was Eeyore in the toilet??? ……….
    He was looking for Pooh….
    Lol She thought she was hilarious.. and I have to admit I laughed too..

    I was given a Wiinie the Pooh teddy when I was born from my Nan. He’s always been in my life but more on the top shelf in recent yrs, until recently late last year when I was diagnoised with cancer. Winnie the Pooh is now sleeping with me every night as a comfort.

    My first memory is watching Pooh Corner Christmas on vhs which I think was people in pooh bear costumes acting it out (or maybe puppets). Also watching Winnie the pooh tv series on Saturday Disney each week as a child. Now that I have kids of my own I love reading them the original aa Milne pooh books and love showing them the classic pooh illustrations. We made the nursery theme for my daughter classic pooh.

    My best friend in school had a stuffed Tigger and Piglet and they were our constant sleepover companions. There is also a quote where Piglet asks Pooh how to spell love. Pooh says you don’t spell it… you feel it. THE FEELS!!!
