"One of the best performances of his career": More great reviews for Johnny Depp in FINDING NEVERLAND!

Critics continue to search for superlatives to describe Johnny’s performance as J. M. Barrie. Thanks to DeepinDepp for sharing the reviews:

Paul Clinton of CNN says, “FINDING NEVERLAND is a beautifully crafted exploration of the many dimensions of the human heart. The new film about Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie–and his creation of the beloved character Peter Pan–is deeply moving without being overly sentimental, due in large part to Johnny Depp’s extraordinary performance in the lead role. [. . .]As always, Depp delivers an astounding performance. He has the uncanny ability to express, with just a single glance or gesture, an entire encyclopedia of human emotions.”

Tom Long in the Detroit News writes: “In one of the best performances of his career, Johnny Depp stars as playwright James Barrie, and the film follows the events that led him to write PETER PAN. It’s a part Depp could have made showy and mad; instead he brings just the right twinkle of irascibility balanced with maturity to the film. There’s an inner imp to this man, but there’s also a true, quiet strength. [. . .] FINDING NEVERLAND should be an Oscar gold mine; and really, why even bother voting, just give Depp his statue. There have been other strong performances this year [. . . ,] but in FINDING NEVERLAND, filmdom’s most adventurous and potentially quirky actor dons a maturity never before seen. And yet he’s still pure Depp.”
