I was completely blown away by this movie after having stumbled upon it by accident. This is not the Johnny Depp movie about J.M. Barrie, and it is not a big-budget Hollywood movie, but it is an amazing, strangely sexy/beautiful, incredibly insightful take on PETER PAN. If you are a PETER PAN fan, if you are interested in modern, edgy interpretations of classics like Baz Luhrman's ROMEO AND JULIET, or if you are into extremely cool and stylish indie cinema, this film is a must have for your collection. Beautifully directed. Incredible symbolism, especially in costuming and settings. I was so impressed with the script (stayed very true to the novel), the metaphorical genius employed, and the talented cast members. This film really stands out among other low-budget films. There were a few downfalls to it, as with any movie (i.e. the drug induced color and light sequences momentarily detract attention from the point of the movie). On the whole, I absolutely recommend this movie, especially to those familiar with the original story of Peter Pan. It's dark and original, and manages a whole new take on the well-known classic while staying true to the story JM Barrie wanted to tell.
