I just got back from seeing Finding Neverland with Emma.
It’s the story of J.M. Barrie and the family that were the basis of Peter Pan, with Johnny Depp as Mr Barrie.

It was a very emotional film….from tense awkwardness at the beginning (or pretty much any scene in which he’s talking to his wife) to crushing sadness at the end.
By the time the closing credits came there were quite a number of sniffles and snuffles coming from various parts of the audience, my seat included….

I don’t really have anything more to say about it, partly ’cause I’m no good at reviews, and partly ’cause it’s too soon after, and I’m still feeling a little wobbly..

It’s definitely well worth seeing though – if you can catch it before it disappears…
