CAST: Yashua Mack, Devin France, Gage Naquin DIRECTOR: Benh Zeitlin
The classic story of Peter Pan is wildly reimagined in this ragtag epic from Benh Zeitlin, director of Beasts of the Southern Wild. Lost on a mysterious island where aging and time have come unglued, Wendy must fight to save her family, her freedom, and the joyous spirit of youth from the deadly peril of growing up.
Zeitlin has come up with a second film that goes down many of the same paths as his debut, another film filled with kids rampaging as the music swells-but he puts it on a mythic stage and creates a film that is magical and messy, unruly and otherworldly.Steve Pond, TheWrap
Every frame of the film is excitingly alive and freshly conceived, making it something very much worth seeing on the big screen.Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
