HARMANS CROSS MOVIE NIGHTS
On 13 March we’re showing Goodbye Christopher Robin at 7.30 in Harman’s Cross Village Hall. Winnie-the-Pooh occupies a special place in our hearts so anyone making a film about him must take great care not to destroy that magic. Director Simon Curtis doesn’t let us down in that respect, in telling the tale of the special relationship between children’s author A. A. Milne and his son Christopher Robin. Milne is a bitter, traumatised veteran of the First World War. Back home, his wife, Daphne, refuses to countenance talk of his trauma or musings on the futility of war. Soon comes an innocent boy they christen Christopher Robin but call Billy Moon. His parents continue to mingle in high society, whilst he’s left almost entirely in the charge of his compassionate and devoted nanny. It takes years before, temporarily alone one summer in the countryside, father and son finally bond and we see the magical adventures that the title led us to expect. Milne is so delighted with this fantasy that he is inspired to write about them, and publishes his stories to immediate and clamorous acclaim. As Christopher Robin’s fame grows, so does Billy’s misery. Tiddely-Pom.
Tickets £5 on the door, which will open, along with the bar, at 7pm.
