Synopsis / Plot
A tale of magic and fantasy inspired by the life of James Barrie, the real-life author of the children's classic "Peter Pan". Set in London in 1904, the film follows Barrie's creative journey to bring Peter Pan to life, from his first inspiration for the story up until the play's premiere at the Duke of York's Theatre--a night that will change not only Barrie's own life, but the lives of everyone close to him.
The successful Scottish playwright James M Barrie is a literary genius of his times but bored by the same old themes. Unexpectedly, he finds some inspiration during his daily walk in London’s Kensington Gardens. There, Barrie encounters the Llewelyn Davies family: four fatherless boys and their beautiful mother. Despite the disapproval of the boys’ grandmother and the resentment of his own wife, Barrie befriends the family. He transforms the boys into “The Lost Boys of Neverland”. From the sheer thrills and adventurousness of childhood will come Barrie’s most renowned masterwork, Peter Pan. At first, his theatrical company is sceptical but Barrie begins rehearsals only to shock his actors with such unprecedented requests. Then, a tragic twist of fate will make the writer and those he loves most understand just what it means to really believe.
