Milos Stehlik Interviews ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’ Director Simon Curtis

Goodbye Christopher Robin is a new film from British director Simon Curtis. It’s an origin story on how British writer A.A. Milne’s writings about his son Christopher’s collection of stuffed animals would form the basis for “Winnie-the-Pooh.”

WBEZ film contributor Milos Stehlik of Facets joins us to talk with Curtis about what his film reveals about 1920s English culture that is still relevant today.
