Underrated gem.

This is the somewhat true story of the creator of Peter Pan, and features a fantastic performance by both Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet. In addition, youngster Freddie Highmore gives a great performance that will get even the most solemn viewer a bit choked up.It's a story about loss, and love and the power of imagination - and yes, that all sounds quite cheesy, but it isn't.

If it is not perfect, it's because the film is sometimes a bit precious, and also not for those who like their films without a bit of fantasy. It's a serious, but lovely film.
