Clint Says: Drop everything and go see this movie now
This film is nothing short of spectacular. It is a story that will draw you in, make you fall in love, and then destroy your emotions. And the strange thing is, you'll be completely okay with it.
This is a character-driven film, so it can really only be as good as the acting allows. In this case, the acting by all parties involved is award-worthy. Domhnall Gleeson proves once and for all that he is among the elite in Hollywood. Will Tilston (Christopher Robin) will captivate your heart, and the lovable Margot Robbie gives a performance that will make you have feelings about her that you didn't know were possible.
The cinematography is gorgeous, the story is beautifully told, and every other aspect of this movie is perfect.
You will feel all of the emotions while watching this film. You'll laugh, you'll be angry, you'll fall in love, and you will ugly cry. That goes for the guys, too. I saw this in a room of about 10 people and for several minutes there was a lot of loud sniffing, and a quick glance around the room showed that nobody had dry eyes.
If Winnie The Pooh was a part of your childhood this story will mean even more to you, but surprisingly, you don't need to be a fan of the "silly old bear" to be a fan of this film.
