This review is from: Neverland (DVD)
The movie Neverland really amazed me. Beautifully directed. Incredible symbolism, especially in costuming and settings. I was so impressed with the script (stayed very true to the novel), the metaphorical genius employed, and the talented cast members. This film really stands out among other low-budget films. There were a few downfalls to it, as with any movie. At times the acting seemed a bit forced, there were choppy scenes, and lengthy drug induced color and light schemes momentarily detract attention from the point of the movie. On the whole, I thought the movie was incredible and the talent of those involved really speaks for itself. I absolutely recommend this movie, especially to those familiar with the original story of Peter Pan. It's dark and original, and manages a whole new take on the well-known classic while staying true to the story JM Barrie wanted to tell.
