Award-winning stars Johnny Depp (Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl), Kate Winslet (Titanic) and Dustin Hoffman (Rain Man) bring to life the story of a man who awakened the world's imagination, and the people who inspired him! Finding Neverland is a tale about James M. Barrie's extraordinary journey to create the classic, Peter Pan – from his first inspiration to the night of the play's premiere!
“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
Dead Poets Society:
When charismatic English professor John Keating (Oscar winner Robin Williams) arrives at a strict boys academy, his unconventional teaching methods breath new life into the curriculum steeped in tradition. With his wit and wisdom, Keating inspires his students to pursue individual passions and make their lives extraordinary.
Best Picture BAFTA Winner 1990.
"Robin Williams stars as an English teacher who doesn't fit into the conservative prep school where he teaches, but whose charisma and love of poetry inspires several boys to revive a secret society with a bohemian bent. The script is well meaning but a little trite, though director Peter Weir (The Truman Show) adds layers of emotional depth in scenes of conflict between the kids and adults. (A subplot involving one father's terrible pressure on his son–played by Robert Sean Leonard–to drop his interest in theater reaches heartbreaking proportions.) Williams is given plenty of latitude to work in his brand of improvisational humor, though it is all well-woven into his character's style of instruction. "–Tom Keogh
