Film Friday: Finding Neverland


I enjoyed this adaptation of JM Barrie's life, and the story of how he found his inspiration to write Peter Pan after meeting a family of 4 young boys whose mother is suffering from illness.


[After watching the film we did a quick google and found the actual Barrie, below, has a very impressive moustache that Johnny Depp's portrayal omitted, I wonder why!]

  2. This was one of the best movies at the time of the release. I adored it so much. Pure blissful to watch. The characters were played so well by both Johnny and Kate. Great film indeed.

  3. i agree. I’d forgotten about this film. must watch it again soon. I can’t believe they left out the moustache though....it was a whopper! Such a prominent detail to leave out. Have a lovely weekend. I might make brownies (Jamie’s are very good too...my husband made them recently). :)

  4. I love this movie! It would have been better with the moustache though. My google followers gadget seems to keep disappearing and then reappearing, not sure why either! x
