FINDING NEVERLAND (Theatrical Release USA 2004)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Finding Neverland—
one of those movies that makes one feel profound thanks for the movie industry—shows Johnny Depp at his best. Director Marc Forster takes a very good, inventive, creative, imaginative script and successfully translates it into the movie format without missing a beat of orchestration. A very good look behind the scenes at the germination, growth, and birth of Peter Pan and the world he lives in.
