  • SYNOPSIS

    In Finding Neverland, author J.M. Barrie is reaching the end of his rope. His last play was a dismal failure, and he desperately needs to find a story worthy of the stage. With an approaching deadline and an over wrought and over zealous producer nipping at his heels, Barrie is feeling crippling pressure and suffering from writer’s block. And then something magical happens; he meets a mother and her boys in a London park, and they inspire him to create what would be his biggest hit and most important work.
