Daphne Milne: You know what writing a book against war is like? It's like writing a book against Wednesdays. Wednesdays... are a fact of life, and if you don't like them, you could just stay in bed, but you can't stop them because Wednesdays are coming and if today isn't actually a Wednesday it soon will be.

Best Film of My Life!
6 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

My favorite film of my lifetime...All Quiet on the Western Front...Chariots of Fire...English Patient and Now: Goodbye Christopher Robin! Simply the best of many great films...It was a story about universal stories and done on so many levels...the difference of a child's imaginary world and the real world in which the child lives...a coming of age film...an overcoming of a war wounded mind...a father film...a mother film....the gift of a caretaker to a child and then to herself... an actress mom, center stage, on her every stage, the father writer who did not write..."I'm thinking"....and then he wrote about Christopher Robin...and Pooh... all rolled into one...tears and laughter and a realizing of a change in self as profound as when I watched other greats...thanks!
