Did You Know?


Dustin Hoffman has his hand in his jacket while being told the idea of the boy who would never grow up because he had cut the tip of his finger when a folding chair he was sitting in collapsed and the doctor ordered that his hand had to remain above his heart.


Factual errors:
There was much literary license taken regarding J.M. Barrie and his relationships with key characters. He and his wife didn't divorce until several years after the film's time period. Also, Sylvia's husband didn't die several years after the film; Sylvia didn't until 1910, six years after the Peter Pan premiere. Barrie knew the boys for several years before their apparent first meeting.

Opening night. I love opening night. How are you? Did you see him?

User Review

Depply Beautiful

Rating: 10/10

I don't know how good this movie is and I don't care because I loved
it. It left me kind of numb. Moved, transported, enchanted. That's
exactly how I want to feel when I get out of a movie. "Finding
Neverland" gave it to me, in spades. Johnny Depp, hey Johnny you're the
best we've got. I forgot that it was you two minutes into the movie, I
only knew I loved that character. That in itself is part of the many
miracles the movie has in store. Yours, is a performance of perfect
beauty. Kate Winslet is quickly becoming my favourite actress. Julie
Christie is, was and always will be my "Darling" but Freddie Highmore,
you and your brothers gave me one the best evenings in a movie theatre
I had in a long, long, time. My girlfriend just read my comment over my
shoulder, her comment was very succinct: "You write like a woman" Okay,
let's see if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Good night kids.
