In this drama, we are told the story of how J.M. Barrie came up with the play Peter Pan. After some failed attempts at creating a well written play, Barrie finds himself in a park playing with his dog. Several moments later he will come to meet the inspiration for his next play, four small boys and a widowed mother, who seems to be growing weaker by the day. Soon, the whole town is talking about Barrie and the Davies family, which causes some rough waters in his marriage. But what comes from his experiences is the play that comes to be known as Peter Pan.

  • This movie is great. Not only was the casting great but the whole movie. Some people need to watch this movie when they are feeling down and the world is not exciting anymore. With a little imagination you can go everywhere even if you are not a child. Hey grown ups can use their imagination as well. Johnny Depp’s performance as Mr. Barrie was superb. You can tell his heart was in it. So genuine and kind and that’s why I believe he is one the greatest actor. He can play any part. Kate Winslet also was great and these two had great chemistry. Not as good as he and Christina Ricci. But I recommend those who are young at heart and loved the book/play/movie of Peter Pan, to watch the story behind it.
