Finding Neverland (2004) Rated PG


The story of J.M. Barrie and his friendship with a family that inspired Peter Pan. Starring Johnny Depp, Kate Winslet, and Julie Christie.

This film brings to life the events and lives that inspired Peter Pan. Barrie is wonderfully portrayed by Depp. This is another role that seems to be made for Depp; we watch the mind-bending writer’s mind as he looks for inspiration around him for the classic tale. The film is a wonderful and fantastical story about Barrie writing his classic story. The film revolves around the warmth of joy that comes from dreams and fairy tales. The film isn’t a biography of Barrie’s life, it just looks at him as he tries to write his next play. I don’t know how much of the story is true regarding Barrie’s life, but it does give us a taste of the magical land of Neverland. This film is worth a watch.
