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.

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.

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.

'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

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.

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.'
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

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

A celebration of artistry, not as mere ornament, but as the very stuff of life.
