Finding Neverland cloys a bit at first, the sudden bursts of fantasy rough, jarring and obvious. But when it finds its groove, it doesn't get off, and I'll be thinking about its discussion of mortality, the sadness and joy of the last few scenes, for a while.
And Depp, of course, is ten kinds of hot.
Kinsey is smart, witty, beautifully acted, and more than a little strange. Weak only when it delves into full-on bio-pic territory, I liked it much more as a discussion of the role sex plays in society, and how one of the most natural acts in nature is so twisted around by rules and morals, and whether or not those rules and morals are necessary. In the end, it's a sweet story about nerd love. But some interesting stuff happens along the way.
A Very Long Engagement comes out this Friday. THIS FRIDAY. I can't tell you how excited I am.
