Did you know that the movie Finding Neverland was super inaccurate to the real story? Yes, it’s a movie (and if you enjoyed said movie, good for you). But I’m here, I’m queer, and I’m about to shatter your comfortable illusion:
The change that bothered me the most was the fake relationship they gave Barrie & Peter.
In the movie, they had a deep, meaningful relationship, and Peter was an aspiring playwright who helped Barrie realize his vision.
In real life, Peter was a baby when Barrie was writing the play, he hated the fact that the main character was named after him, believed that Barrie got between his parents and tore his family apart, and eventually threw himself in front of a train.
Honestly, I don’t know why they didn’t use the fascinating truth for their PG family flick. Oh well, more truth for me! Truth is so rarely used, there’s always plenty to go around.
