TCP#100: Finding Neverland

Hello Couchers! Finally, we are on the 100th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes! I hope that it was fun for you all as it was fun for me. Since we are on the 100th post, our theme for this week will be: Famous! If you know of a good film about a famous person, then come share it with us this Tuesday.


My pick for this week: Finding Neverland. It is an interesting film as it is about how James Barrie came to create Peter Pan and Neverland, inspired by his neighbors, the Davies brothers, who lost their father. Set in pre-WWII London in the year 1940, it showed the struggles of James Barrie to bring Peter Pan to the stage for the very first time. The musical turned out to be a success in the end. In the film, James Barrie also found himself becoming a surrogate father to the orphaned Davies brothers.

With a star-studded cast composed of Johnny Depp as James Barrie, Kate Winslet as the boys mother Sylvia Davies, Radha Mitchell as Barrie's wife Mary Ansell Barrie, Dustin Hoffman as producer Charles Frohman, and Julie Christie as the boys' grandmother Emma du Maurier. This movie is magical and suitable for the entire family. Just goes to show that in every one of us is a child.
