Jeremy Bloom’s adaptation of the classic J.M. Barrie tale digs deep into the darker side of Neverland, breaking the story down into its most essential and imaginative parts, and creating a much more adult exploration of the psychology and meaning underlying one of the most famous “children’s” stories ever told.
