When I think back on the movie it was rather slow, but I was never bored.

I really liked the movie and would recommend it to anyone who likes Peter Pan and literature.

It is like Shakespear in Love was to Romeo and Juliet...

I like The Tempest better... did they ever do a movie about that?>

Anyway, thumbs up from me for Finding Neverland

I havent seen it but I'm having difficulty imagining Johnny Depp with a Scotch accent and any sort of chemistry between him and Winslet

It was good. Depp was great, but I have a man crush on him.

I have a school girl crush on him. will definitely be buying it :p

Uh...try "The Tempest". It's a movie.

Finding Neverland was surprisingly good hearted and cheesy. I almost audibly sobbed in the theater. God...that would have been embarrassing, had I not artfully covered it with a bit of a cough.

you're so butch!

Well, had there been more people there I wouldn't have minded...as it was, I would have been found out straight away.

Synopsis: the only thing more heartbreaking than watching a very sad child for 2 hours is watching someone try to cheer that child up for 2 hours.

the only thing funnier than a sad child is a child who falls over in an amusing fashion

I was probably victim of PP syndrome, but (or... thus?) I hated the novel.
This movie was acceptable, it had its moments, it wasn't TOO... corny (??? i.e. excessively sweet-hearted)
God, hadn't Julie Christie got old? Still in great shape tho.
And Cow Winslet susprisingly gave us a measured interpretation...
I wonder whether the casting of Hoffman was an intentional reference to Spielberg's Hook, where he played the title role.

PS: I saw this in original, and I kept wondering why Depp had that strange accent... (d'oh); OTOH I understood him much more easily than the rest of the cast! :lol:

I want to make a "Dingding Neverland" copycat, but I'm undecided whether here or Counterpoint would be the appropriate forum for that
