The film follows the author’s relationship with his son with Margot Robbie playing Milne’s wife, Daphne.

Vanity Fair magazine are already predicting an Oscar, writing:

“Awards Season Darling Domhnall Gleeson to Get a Real Shot at Oscar”.

“Domhnall Gleeson, who grew up in the spotlight of his actor father Brendan Gleeson, might certainly have an insight or two into the life of Christopher Robin Milne.

“But it’s entirely possible that this biopic will only touch on the knottier side of the Milne legacy.

“Still, whether sanitised and heartwarming or more complex, both Goodbye Christopher Robin and Domhnall Gleeson seem as though they’ll have a real shot at being part of the Oscar conversation in 2018.”
