Not about Peter Pan, and not a kids' movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 29, 2009
A heartfelt, beautiful film, and one of the best dramas I've seen in years.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 18, 2008
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.
August 7, 2008
Johnny Depp makes another run at the Oscar in the shoes of author-playwright J.M. Barrie.

Finding Neverland is about the importance of hanging on to belief in something that transcends the empirical world. It's a gentle, graceful, and unsentimental film.

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.
January 17, 2006
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.
December 6, 2005
A nicely played family entertainment with perhaps more mystery than it knows what to do with.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Clap your hands for a better script.
Full Review | Original Score: C
June 25, 2005
The only spark of genuine humanity appears at the very end, but by that time most great opportunities of FINDING NEVERLAND are already lost.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
April 17, 2005
The film's about knowing where your inner child is and letting it out to explore great worlds of adventure.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

'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'
| Original Score: 3/4
March 23, 2005
The film is incredibly manipulative both in its script and execution, but despite this we do feel for the characters.
March 9, 2005
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Finding Neverland is sentimental, to be sure, but a wonderful find for the patient viewer.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
February 20, 2005
Se queda grabada en el alma, esa alma que debiera seguir con polvos mágicos en vez de sólo empolvándose con el paso del tiempo.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
February 13, 2005
If it didn't have Johnny Depp as its star, Finding Neverland would barely pass muster as an average PBS Masterpiece Theatre entry.
February 13, 2005
'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.'
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
