Aro Recommended Finding Neverland


USA 2004, 101 minutes
Dir. Marc Forster
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Drama, Family

Topics: Period - 1900s, Tearjerker.


Aroview: Impressive journey into the private life of Edwardian 'Peter Pan'-creator JM Barrie (played by Depp), and the unique circumstances in which he wrote his famous play.

Strolling one day in a London park, Depp comes across a clan of young boys and grows close to the family, recently left fatherless, the two parties drawing mutual sustenance from each other's company. Revolving its themes of loss, innocence and escapism around the dramatic course of events which follow, this gives a fairly 'safe' interpretation of Barrie's besottments and neglect of his wife (Mitchell).

However the film's mecurial tone is effective and suggestive: like 'Peter Pan' itself, there is more here than meets the eye.
