Finding Neverland

The first time I tried to watch this, the disc would only show me 45 minutes scattered throughout the movie. Netflix sent me a new disc and while the added 101 minutes added meat to the plot, it was still a pretty mediocre movie.

This is the story of how J.M. Barrie came up with the ideas for Peter Pan -- meeting four boys and playing with them, and the premiere of the play. None of the actors, even Johnny Depp, really stood out. The boy who played Peter looked like he was going to burst into tears any second. It got a batch of Oscar nominations and I can only guess that was more for the idea than the execution. It was satisfactory background for some beading.
