Finding Neverland

4/5 stars

Finding Neverland follow J. M. Barrie (played by Johnny Depp) as he develops the script for Peter Pan. This is not the story of Peter Pan, but the story of J. M. Barrie as he befriends four boys and their widowed mother, Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Kate Winslet).

The film does fall into a sentimental pit when it changes the real life story to have Davies dying just after the play opens to include it in the film. It frankly would have been just as good to show Davies falling ill, but not dying. Hollywood does enjoy a dramic death, I suppose.
