Not about Peter Pan, and not a kids' movie.

A heartfelt, beautiful film, and one of the best dramas I've seen in years.

Like Big Fish and The Neverending Story, this is a film that reminds us that life, coloured by our perceptions, is what we make it; all we have to do is believe.

Johnny Depp makes another run at the Oscar in the shoes of author-playwright J.M. Barrie.

Looking Closer

Finding Neverland is about hanging on to that belief in something that transcends the empirical world. It's a small, gentle, graceful motion picture.

A charming and dramatic tearjerker that's sweet without resorting to syrup.

Infused by an awkward decorum; the kind that descends on a gathering dominated by an unmentioned death or transgression.

Plenty of narrative liberties have been taken. It doesn't matter a jot. At heart, this isn't a biography anyway, it's an ode to the power of the imagination.

A nicely played family entertainment with perhaps more mystery than it knows what to do with.

The only spark of genuine humanity appears at the very end, but by that time most great opportunities of FINDING NEVERLAND are already lost.

The film's about knowing where your inner child is and letting it out to explore great worlds of adventure.

'En una época tan falta de historias agradables, que rejuvenezcan el espíritu humano y nos transporten a lo mejor de nuestra infancia, un filme como este es perfecto'

The film is incredibly manipulative both in its script and execution, but despite this we do feel for the characters.

Interestingly and movingly hints at the sad future fate of his Lost Boys, but it's too timid to follow up on those dark portents.

Finding Neverland is sentimental, to be sure, but a wonderful find for the patient viewer.

Se queda grabada en el alma, esa alma que debiera seguir con polvos mágicos en vez de sólo empolvándose con el paso del tiempo.

If it didn't have Johnny Depp as its star, Finding Neverland would barely pass muster as an average PBS Masterpiece Theatre entry.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

'The jewel in the cast is 12-year-old Highmore. Not since Henry Thomas in "E.T." has such a young actor held the screen with such emotion.'
