Finding Neverland

[cert PG, 0 mins]

Finding Neverland explores the relationship
between JM Barrie (played by Johnny Depp) and the
fatherless Llewelyn Davies family that led to the
creation of children's favourite Peter Pan. Set in
London in 1904 the film begins with the meeting of
Barrie and the Llewelyn Davies family in Kensington
Gardens which marks the beginning of their
imaginative friendship. Still bereaved from the loss
of their father, the boys take refuge in the
imaginative world that Barrie helps them create
through play. As his relationship with the boys and
their mother Sylvia (Kate Winslet) becomes
increasingly important to him, his marriage to Mary is sidelined.
