|Finding Neverland [HD]||—||—||—|
Acclaimed superstars Johnny Depp, Kate Winslet, Julie Christie and Dustin Hoffman bring a world of magic to life on Blu-ray Disc®. Dubbed "glorious entertainment" by Rolling Stone Magazine, FINDING NEVERLAND soars higher than ever in this remarkable high definition format. At a career crossroads after his latest play fails, well-known writer James M. Barrie (Depp) meets a widow (Winslet) and her four adventurous boys. Together they form a friendship that ignites the imagination needed to produce Barrie's greatest work PETER PAN! Feast your eyes on the sumptuous visual brilliance of 1080p while your ears revel in the richness of 5.1 48 kHz, 24-bit uncompressed audio. You will believe thanks to Blu-ray High Definition.
Sweetness that doesn't turn saccharine is hard to find these days; Finding Neverland hits the mark. Much credit is due to the actors: Johnny Depp applies his genius for sly whimsy in his portrayal of playwright J. M. Barrie, who finds inspiration for his greatest creation from four lively boys, the sons of widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Kate Winslet, who miraculously fuses romantic yearning with common sense). Though the friendship threatens his already dwindling marriage, Barrie spends endless hours with the boys, pretending to be pirates or Indians--and gradually the elements of Peter Pan take shape in his mind. The relationship between Barrie and the Llewelyn Davies family sparks both an imagined world and a quiet rebellion against the stuffy forces of respectability, given physical form by Barrie's resentful wife (Radha Mitchell, High Art) and Sylvia's mother (Julie Christie, McCabe and Mrs. Miller). This gentle silliness could have turned to treacle, but Depp and Winslet--along with newcomer Freddie Highmore as one of the boys--keep their feet on the earth while their eyes gaze into their dreams. Also featuring a comically crusty turn from Dustin Hoffman (who appeared in another Peter Pan-themed movie, Hook) as a long-suffering theater producer. --Bret Fetzer
Somehow, I had missed this movie. Finally rented/watched the other evening.
Very gentle and kind.
Johnny Depp takes us by the hand and in the gentlest most reassuring way leads into the heart, soul and mind of an artist. How easy is for the world to judge. Read morePublished 1 day ago by AMAZONITIS
We enjoyed this, but, it took me awhile to realize it was a story about the author/creator of Peter Pan. Once I grasp that it was easier to follow the story.Published 1 day ago by SJClark
Really enjoyed this enchanting movie. A tragic ending of love and loss, but very well acted.Published 1 day ago by Janine Boyer
Very good film. The actors are very believable. The boy who played Peter did the best job however.Published 2 days ago by She N
