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

One of the best performances by Johnny Depp.

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.
