Description

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.

Review

"Sweetness that doesn't turn saccharine is hard to find these days; Finding Neverland hits the mark. Much credit is due to the actors: Johnny Depp applies his genius for sly whimsy in his portrayal of playwright J. M. Barrie, who finds inspiration for his greatest creation from four lively boys, the sons of widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Kate Winslet, who miraculously fuses romantic yearning with common sense). Though the friendship threatens his already dwindling marriage, Barrie spends endless hours with the boys, pretending to be pirates or Indians--and gradually the elements of Peter Pan take shape in his mind. The relationship between Barrie and the Llewelyn Davies family sparks both an imagined world and a quiet rebellion against the stuffy forces of respectability, given physical form by Barrie's resentful wife (Radha Mitchell, High Art) and Sylvia's mother (Julie Christie, McCabe and Mrs. Miller). This gentle silliness could have turned to treacle, but Depp and Winslet--along with newcomer Freddie Highmore as one of the boys--keep their feet on the earth while their eyes gaze into their dreams. Also featuring a comically crusty turn from Dustin Hoffman (who appeared in another Peter Pan-themed movie, Hook) as a long-suffering theater producer."--Bret Fetzer
