GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is a biopic about the relationship between author A.A. Milne and his son, who inspired the Winnie the Pooh stories.

Violence

There are brief flashbacks to the battlefields of the First World War in which dead bodies are seen. They are partially hidden in the low light and mud, and there is no strong injury detail. The images are there to help us understand the character's behaviour - as he is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder because of what he has seen and experienced in the war.

A scene of school bullying shows a young boy being pushed down a flight of stairs while people chant a mocking rhyme. The film does not condone or endorse the bullies' behaviour.

There are occasional uses of very mild bad language. There is infrequent very mild innuendo.
