Take a journey to Neverland

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Just because you grow up doesn’t mean all the fun, mystery and magic in life has to cease and be locked away with childhood memories. There is always new adventures waiting to be experienced, and excitement lying within the day’s events; all that is needed is a little faith.

“Finding Neverland” proves this point. James M. Barrie (Johnny Depp) is dealing with some adult blues. He is a playwright who has just had a flop and his marriage is failing.

The Davies family is also suffering from some very mature troubles. Sylvia (Kate Winslet), along with her four boys, has lost her husband to cancer and Sylvia herself is becoming ill.

Each person is need of spark to reignite their lives and they find that spark within each other.

The Davies inspired Barrie to write his greatest work, “Peter Pan” and in return, Barrie encourages the Davies to believe in all the fantastic things life can offer.

While there are extremely sad moments in the movie, it faithfully follows Barrie’s philosophy to show while life has its struggles; it also has magic, too.

There is some great acting in the movie; after seeing Depp portray everyone from a guy with scissor hands to a pirate with eyeliner and dreadlocks, it sort of refreshing to see him portray a clean looking, yet still unique character.
