"Finding Neverland" is an emotive biography of James M. Barrie, the author of the children's books "Peter Pan" and "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens." The movie gives insight into Barrie's relationship with a dying woman and her three children, who Barrie becomes rather attached to. The relationship is not really a romantic one, but rather a closeness between a friend and family. The resulting inspiration to Barrie's career as a playwright is astounding. This new play might be enough to resurrect the failing Barrie's career. Despite much criticism and doubt over his newest venture, the imaginative new play brings nostalgia about childhood.
