I think this has got to be one of the best film adaptations of James Matthew Barrie novels. Adapted for film many times. Jason Isaacs is terrifying as Peter Pan although he looks like he is having great fun. Apparently, this is Jason Isaacs’s favourite of his own films. This is George MacKay’s first feature length film and his screen debut. Unfortunately, this is regarded as one of the biggest box office flops of all time.
