Finding Neverland

Finding Neverland product reviews

Unlock your imagination.

In Finding Neverland, Johnny Depp stars as J M Barrie, the author of the classic story, Peter Pan. Set in London in 1904, this is a fictional account of the writer's creative journey to bring his classic to life. Barrie's encounter with a recently widowed mother (Kate Winslet) and her four sons becomes his stimulus for the story.

He is drawn to the mother and her boys whom he entertains with his soaring imagination and with whom he plays games (including pirates) in the park. The story takes us from this first inspiration for his timeless tale to the play's premiere - a night that would change not only Barrie's life but also the lives of everyone close to him.

Bring the tissues for this one and plenty of them.

This is not a Peter Pan movie, well, it is but it isn't. Finding Neverland tells us the story of J.M. Barrie and how he came to create the world famous and timeless movie that is Peter Pan. Exploring the major theme of Barrie's play (that of a boy who never grows up), Finding Neverland refrains from condemning grown-ups, but exalts the wild magic one can enjoy as a kid. For James, who had to deal with his family's reticence upon the death of his brother, the real tragedy occurs when a child is forced to grow up too fast.

The film does move at a snail's pace but it suits the movie and to go too fast would be to take away from the beauty and feeling of this movie and you wouldn't cry if it had gone too fast. As for the acting, it is wonderful. Depp is understated and gallant, Kate Winslet is lovely and tragic, and they're both better than I've ever seen them. The boys playing the Davis kids are a lot of fun to watch and play their dramatic parts perfectly.

This is a movie full of heart and a great movie to watch for any fan of the boy who never grew up.
