    Story of a man who doesn't want to grow up, and writes a story of a boy who never does. How can someone possibly not relate to that? 2 years 7 months ago

    Absolutely wonderful movie. Very sweet story, lovely actors (also the kids), nice music. I loved the cuts between reality and fairy tale. Very touching! 2 years 1 month ago

    I'm not a particular fan of either Peter Pan or Johnny Depp, but I'm very much a fan of Finding Neverland. For one thing, Depp is so much more restrained in his performance than he is in a lot of other things. For another, I'm a real sucker for stories like this where the life and work of an author mix liberally (Shakespeare in Love is another). There isn't a bad note in the film, and he could so easily have slipped into sentimentalism and melodrama. The performances are excellent, the story wonderfully poignant, and the turn-of-the-century stagecraft really interesting. Ultimately, it's about letting your imagination go free, which justifies any and all changes made to the J.M. Barrie's biography. 1 year 7 months ago
