Finding Neverland (4-Sep-2004)

Director: Marc Forster

Writer: David Magee

From a play by: Allan Knee

Keywords: Drama

Semi-biographical film depicts events leading to J. M. Barrie's creation of Peter Pan.

ABSTRACT
J. M. Barrie, a noted Scottish playwright possessed with a lifelong passion for literature despite a less-than-supportive family, embarked on a platonic relationship with English woman Sylvia Llewelyn Davies following the failure of play Little Mary that would go on to inspire magnum opus Peter Pan. His life story receives a dramatized screen treatment in Finding Neverland, following a hard-up writer affected by career setbacks as his encounter with Sylvia and her children ultimately produces literary and theatrical gold.
