At a time when most films lack subtlety, it is rare to find one as delicate, wistful and tender as 'Neverwas.'
Writer/ director Joshua Michael Stern has crafted something more than a mess and something less than a film that hits home. Neverwas never does quite win us over.
Never has so much talent come to so little because of a screenplay that's so adrift and aimless. Eckhart plays a psychologist with enough personal psychoses to keep himself preoccupied for a lifetime.
Seems rather a waste to use name actors and then not have them actually do anything.
Good actors are wasted, sets dominate storytelling, and it's all based on the most banal and artificial of children's tales. Avoid.
