“The creatures in the story are toys. They’re toys, but the woods are real.”
The increasingly chameleonic Domhnall Gleeson shines in the solidly made story behind the creation of beloved children’s book character Winnie the Pooh. Looming shadows of war and post-traumatic stress disorder flatter to deceive in lending weight to what is, in reality, a simple exploration of parenthood and childhood, wrapped up in warm, fuzzy wholeheartedness.
