Finding Neverland

So far, I have seen this movie three times! I do not usually see movies repeatedly, but it just happened that way and I haven't minded at all. In fact, each time I enjoyed it more than the last.

The film is about J.M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, and Sylvia Davies, a widow with four young boys. Barrie and Sylvia's growing friendship and Barrie's relationship with the boys are the focus of the story. The family becomes his inspiration for the play and they deeply impact his life. Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet are wonderful in their roles and the story is enjoyable and poignant. You will need a box of tissues for this one.

The film is clean but there are elements of it that might make it unsuitable for the kids. Click here to read a review.
