Opening at The Ross on Friday, November 3, GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN struggles to balance wartime tension and childlike wonder, but offers valuable insight into the darkness shadowing the creation of a classic children's tale. No one's going to accuse GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN of subtlety or of rewriting the biopic rules, but it does dare to go darker than most films like it. –Alonso Duralde, TheWrap It's the chemistry between Domhnall Gleeson and newcomer Will Tilston, as the awkwardly matched father and son, that makes the movie more than a mélange of inept parenting and Tigger too. –Sheri Lindon, Los Angeles Times Two tips for all who see the film: Brush up on the books (and also Milne's beloved poem "Vespers") before going, in order to appreciate all the inside references, and pack your hankies. You'll need 'em. –Peter Debruge, Variety GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN shows at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, November 3 through Thursday, November 16. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN PG (for thematic elements, some bullying, war images, and brief language. This program is being presented with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children's author A. A. Milne and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne, 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?
