Inspired by real-life event, the Simon Curtis-directed film follows the relationship of “Winnie the Pooh” creator A.A. Milne and his son, Christopher Robin Milne. Written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Simon Vaughan, the heartwarming tearjerker is set after the events of World War I.
The trailer (above) shows how the well-loved author, who served in the war, came to write “Winnie the Pooh”. After moving to a farm, Milne attempts to pen something that will “make the world see”.
