Finding Neverland

Post by deantrippe » Sat Nov 27, 2004 10:28 pm

I've just returned from 'Finding Neverland' and I'm speechless. I'm a real fan of the original text of Peter Pan, so I'd been looking forward to it.

It wasn't so much a film for kids, but an excellent one for us grownups. I was beyond impressed with Johnny Depp's performance, especially his spot on Scottish accent. I was really moved by the film. It said everything I really wanted it to say, and that's rare.

It was a real treat after having to listen to some fool claim to be 'bored' while watching 'The Incredibles.' ;)

I saw it. Good movie, but not great.

Special star for Johnny tough.

This is good news; the trailer looked really schlocky. I'll probably add it to my xmas break movie marathon.

I'm probably going to see it again. It's really been in my thoughts since I saw it. My sister went to see it and said the same. Great flick.

Might be in contention for my top ten list.

Dude. Seriously? I was crying for like five or ten minutes AFTER the movie.

But I'm a little girl.

Okay, I wasn't doing that. And for me it was more about my own childhood and my parents taking me to see my first play (Peter Pan with Sandy Duncan in the lead). But that's me.
