Editors Note
Note Most people know the story of Peter Pan, the boy who refused to grow up. Director Marc Forster's (MONSTER'S BALL) FINDING NEVERLAND delves deeper, depicting a fictionalized account of the family and events that inspired the classic tale. At the turn of the 20th Century, Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie's (Johnny Depp) latest play in London has flopped almost as badly as his marriage to stature-seeking Mary (Radha Mitchell). During one of his frequent excursions to the park with his dog, Barrie meets four young boys and their recently widowed mother, Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Kate Winslet). Soon Barrie becomes a frequent playmate to the children, using the boys' imagination to take them on fanciful adventures. He also becomes a friend and confidante to the overwhelmed Sylvia, much to the dismay of her overbearing mother (Julie Christie). Barrie's active imagination and interaction with the family inspires "Peter Pan," a play that celebrates the child in everyone and the importance of believing in fantasies and miracles. A droll and amusing Dustin Hoffman appears as American Charles Frohman, Barrie's producer. The film also features young Freddie Highmore as Peter Llewelyn Davies, the inspiration for Barrie's title character.
Reviews
New York Times "Mr. Depp and Ms. Winslet are pleasant to watch..." 11/12/2004 p.E1
USA Today "[A] lovely, poignant and in some ways old-fashioned movie....The story is told gently and simply without excess sentimentality." 11/12/2004 p.6E
Los Angeles Times "Depp and Winslet share a rare combination of airiness, earthiness and sharp, wry intelligence. With his gleaming black hair, quiet grace and molten eyes, Depp makes Barrie's ability to conjure imaginary worlds seem magical." 11/12/2004 p.E1
Entertainment Weekly "FINDING NEVERLAND is studded with little pleasures....The movie glows..." 11/19/2004 p.61
Movieline's Hollywood Life "Winslet brims with warmth, and Julie Christie gives a tart performance....All the actors benefit from the sensitive hand of director Marc Forster..." 12/01/2004 p.103
Rolling Stone "[G]lorious entertainment. It shimmers with the promise of enchantment....The film sparks with comic life..." 11/25/2004 p.100
Uncut "[I]t's about the creative process, the power of the imagination and the place where imagination dwells..." 04/01/2005 p.144
Total Film "[T]his is sweet without being sugary..." 07/01/2006 p.128
Ultimate DVD 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n engrossing period piece with stunning scenery, beautiful costumes and sweet flights of fancy as we enter the world of Barrie's unbridled imagination." 05/01/2007 p.83
