A highly innovative movie about before Alice went to Wonderland and before Peter became Pan. Showing their imagination, their lives and their sorrows they experienced as young children.

Wow this movie hits you incredibly hard, it is such a raw and emotional movie that will tear at your heart and make you cry so much. Three siblings all best friends with wild and huge imaginations and parents that encourage their minds to wander, are hit hard as one of them suddenly dies changing everything about their lives.

I loved the hints we got to Neverland, the lost boys and Wonderland all before we went there and had the stories before us. The children imagine it and things come alive. Then when they are grieving and need them most they escape with dream-dust to where they were menat to be.

The story being told as we see it was clever we had a story within a story about a story and it was beautifully done. Through the story was sad and had some intense and a little scary scenes and it’s pacing was slow at times it was such a unique and creative movie.

The children actors were really talented leading the movie and they kept you captivated to what was happening, wanting to know what was happening next and seeing their imaginations coming alive. The pain and suffering they and their parents were going through throughout the movie and how the story progressed around it.

I’m so happy I gave this movie a chance, it looked cute by the cover and description so I wanted to see what it was like and though not what I expected I was highly impressed and found it a beautiful, innovative but very sad movie.
