*Finding Neverland (PG)
Finding Neverland, a whimsical, warmhearted and heart-wrenching film about J.M. Barrie, the playwright who wrote Peter Pan, builds to a moving climax like a teakettle over a flame. While it often takes the form of a serious drama, an overriding playfulness makes the movie for children and children-at-heart alike, a film completely set apart from Hollywood's standard sex-and-violence fare for adults. Just like Peter Pan, it's a story about never growing up, never surrendering to the cynical world of adults, and never giving up on a place called Neverland. A quirky and rare film, Finding Neverland revels in its childish ways. It sticks its nose at the oh-so-serious world of contemporary films, and upholds the basic message of Peter Pan: that the world worth living in is the world worth dreaming of. Starring Johnny Depp as Barrie; co-starring Kate Winslet. -- Dan Wilcock
