This is a movie on the lines of shakesphere in love, which goes to say what made the author write a book.Here the author is J.M.Barre and it is about his play "Peter Pan".Based on the screenplay "The Man Who Was Peter Pan" by Allan Knee, adapted by David Magee for the movie.
Every time a child says 'I don't believe in fairies' there is a little fairy somewhere that falls down dead.
The movie starts with a Barre's play that audience dislike.And goes on to explores his involvement with the Sylvia Llewelyn Davies's(kate winslet) childrens and how it inspires him to write peter pan.
Young boys should never be sent to bed, for they always wake up a day older.The director mixes sorrow and joy, dream and reality to bring the child in you out.As the peter pan story itself is about beleiving and dreams, it enables the director to cros the reality line and take us into magical dreams.The movie is filled with so many heart warming moments, that will leave your eyes moist.
Jhonny depp has added his magic touch, he lifts the movie just by his presence.He suits the role perfectly and has given a nice performance.The kid Freddie Highmore who comes as Peter is also great, a tear drop in his eyes will bring one in yours.Good acting, direction(Marc Forster), screenplay, music, cinematography(Roberto Schaefer), art direction(Peter Russell) etc makes this a near perfect movie.
Live a dream.wake the child in you,open your wings,hold on to your innocence and fly into a dream called "Finding Neverland".Your heart will brim with sweetness, unadultered sweetness.
When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.
