a bear called winnie
Last year I bought my mom and movie and never gave it to her. A Bear Called Winnie about how Winnie (of Winnie the Pooh fame) came from belonging to a Canadian soldier to ending up at the London Zoo and inspiring A.A. Milne. It's got Stephen Fry, Michael Fassbender, Jonathon Young (Tesla from Sanctuary), Gil Bellows and Aaron Ashmore. Winnie was named after Winnipeg, the hometown of the company.

We're right at the end and it's been making me bawl the entire time. The man really loved Winnie and so many of the veterinary unit of the WWI military put their careers on the line for the bear. Seriously. I'm really crying hard.

There's a fairly thick booklet that came with it that talks about filming and how they had two bear cubs and just followed them around with the camera and let the bears interact with the cast however they wanted. Apparently the bear that played the adult Winnie, a bear named Bonkers, actually gave Michael Fassbender a genuine bear hug and made the entire crew cry.

Oh, AA Milne and Christopher Robin just walked away and tears are running down my face. I am such a sap.

I highly recommend this movie. All my Canadian peeps definitely need to watch it.
