| A bit of 'rah-rah for us'.
"The Magic of 'Finding Neverland'" is a making of featurette for the film "Finding Neverland" and for the most part, it's a 'hooray for us' sort of film where the actors try to convince the audience how wonderful their fellow actors are. I understand why they did this, though to me this makes the film a bit bland and ordinary--which the feature film is not. I also was a bit disappointed that so much of the featurette was spent with the actors congratulating each other and very little time was spent talking about J.M. Barrie or the play and movie versions of "Peter Pan". Only a TINY bit about the movies is tacked on to the end and it only mentions the silent version (which is marvelous) and the Disney cartoon (also marvelous)--but no mention of "Hook" (NOT at all marvelous) or the many other versions of the story. So, if you are looking for background information, then I suggest you look elsewhere. Overall, very ordinary.

Finally, perhaps it's just me, but I felt sad when the children in the movie were described as being 'very well behaved' and 'almost like adults'. Isn't it creepy that a film about childhood has, in a way, been created by taking a bit of it from these young actors? Shouldn't they be described as being 'just like any other kids' or 'mischievous'?
