É um bom filme, não há dúvida. Mas, com um pouco mais de coragem, poderia ter sido tão ambicioso quanto o próprio Peter Pan.

El asunto tiene buenas intenciones, pero, cmo no conmoverse con el primer plano de un nio con grandes ojos llorosos?

Finding Neverland was a real discovery for me. How many of us knew what a personal, emotional, and heartfelt tale this was?

Finding Neverland moved me at times but didn't transport me, either to Edwardian London in the first instance, or from there to Neverland.

"Finding Neverland" is full of wit, emotion, adventure, and mystery that will inspire all ages to come see why and how Peter Pan was born.

It wasn't Barrie's story that the filmmakers were interested in after all... like Disney's Peter Pan, it's just another cloying Hollywood fantasy.

Although one should always be skeptical about movies that claim to be inspired by actual events, Finding Neverland is bursting with such affection, heartache and hope that it becomes the kind of story you want to be true, even if it seems a bit contrived.

A movie that celebrates the power of the imagination while also recognizing its limits in a real world of disappointment, marital disharmony and death.

It's Depp who keeps this fabulous but fragile tale alive. Beyond his perfect-sounding Scottish accent, he presents a subtle and complex Barrie who is simultaneously a playful child, a concerned adult and a freethinking artist.
| Original Score: 10/10
