Where will your imagination take you?
Finding Neverland is an amusing drama about how the story of Peter Pan and Neverland came to be. During a writing slump play writer J.M. Barrie meets the widowed Sylvia and her three children who soon become an important part of Barrie’s life and the inspiration that lead him to create his masterpiece “Peter Pan.”
If you have enough faith and imagination, even Johnny Depp's fishy Irish accent will start to feel real.
All jokes aside, I cried.
An elegantly crafted tale told with utmost sincerity, Finding Neverland is a heartfelt blend of the endless imagination, warmth & exuberant joy of childhood with soul-crushing hardships of real life that benefits a lot from the endearing performances its cast is able to chip in but lacks the wow factor that elevates any film from a 'good one' to a 'great one'.
Finding Neverland is a semi-autobiographical account of the Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie who's best known for creating the character of Peter Pan. The film focuses on his friendship with the Davies family and the time he spent with the Davies' kids from which he drew the inspiration for his next play, which would eventually go on to become a…

What a delightful, charming and sensitive tale, based on Allan Knee's 1998 off-Broadway play "The Man Who Was Peter Pan." Johnny Depp was perfectly cast as the turn-of-the-century playwright Sir James Barrie. He's right at home acting like a child, never quite growing up and well aware that his "work" is to create a "play." He befriends the widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Kate Winslett), whose four sons provide the inspiration for his greatest stage production, "Peter Pan." Dustin Hoffman, Julie Christie and Radha Mitchell also star, and this bittersweet saga received seven Academy Award nominations, including the Oscar-winning Best Score composed by Jan A.P. Kaczmarek.
This is what they mean when they say a film has heart. Marc Forster has crafted a delicate piece here that could easily have gone wrong with its blend of coldness and fantasy, and for all intents and purposes it probably should have. But, grounded by an uncharacteristically subdued performance by Johnny Depp, Finding Neverland manages to successfully navigate the goings-on within the mind of J.M. Barrie as events in his life lead up to the writing of his masterpiece, Peter Pan.
The film breezes by with the lighthearted spirit of its protagonist, yet also balances tragedy well. Now, I did and do feel there is an element of choppiness to the tone, but it completely works: that choppiness is…
We never appreciate the wonder of childhood until we find ourselves burdened with the oppressiveness of adulthood. It's an idea that has been delved into for centuries in various forms of art, and has endured as one of the most effective ideas explored. Most films stagger into laughable territory in their attempts to answer the unanswerable question, but those that maintain a level head are films I consider to be among the best in cinema, because of personal bias.
Finding Neverland uniquely straddles an awkward line. While Johnny Depp's effective performance, a compelling take on an age-old notion and several heartfelt moments sprinkled through the film are tipping it into the territory of the greats, there's the unfocused direction, campy…
A beautiful story that is both fun and adventurous but also serious and sad. It promises to make you laugh, smile, and cry, and for that reason it is a great film. Both Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet are brilliant in their roles and each give a stunning performances in their own way. How can you not enjoy a film based around the real-life creations of Peter Pan?
I'll never get tired of this movie
this is so sad i am so sad
se va al choto de melanco. No me gusta. No es el espíritu de Pan.
I've never seen magic so on the nose before.
Sehr schöner Film
Pretty by the numbers film that nonetheless gets to you by the end due to its solid character work. I was mostly caught up by the fact that Depp plays a pirate here and Dustin Hoffman is involved in another movie based around Peter Pan
I simply love this film.
if you want to see me cry, just play the final fifteen minutes of this movie and i will guaranteed cry my eyes out.
