Day 21: Movie with your favorite actor – Johnny Depp

What is there really to say about Senior Depp that hasn't already been said?  That he is dashingly good looking when he wants to be?  That he is tremendously odd?  That he is old enough to be my Dad?  That he's been snubbed of an Oscar?

Yup, I've said all of those things.  And they are all true.

Finding Neverland is to date probably his greatest acting achievement.  I would cite Edward Scissorhands or Pirates of the Caribbean, but I refuse to acknowledge the last three movies in the series of the latter, and it is too easy for Johnny Depp to be weird.  Finding Neverland is his greatest work because he manages to pull off a sentimental, but subtle performance as author J.M. Barrie.  And the film is brilliantly cast alongside Depp featuring Dustin Hoffman and Kate Winslet.

A cryer for sure, but definitely worth the watch.  It is so well made.
