Handicapped by his own success, playwright J. M. Barrie (Depp) is depressed by his apparent importance in the critical world. Then a meeting with a widowed mother (Winslet) and her four sons sparks a lasting friendship and the inspiration for his greatest work: Peter Pan.
By turns uplifting and heartbreaking, Neverland is infused with a sense of soaring wonder throughout. Peter Pan may still be looking for a perfect adaptation, but his creator has been granted the treatment he so richly deserves.
