Wendy Can’t Imagine Itself Into a Good Film
Director Benh Zeitlin tries to recreate the youthful magic of Beast of the Southern Wild with his latest film. Unfortunately Wendy is more dud than magically. This reimagining of the tale of Peter Pan can't figure out if it wants to be grounded in reality or be a tale about magic and youthful imagination.
For this review there was a wide range of opinions from those of us that loved the film to those of us who couldn't stand it. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. There are emotional beats and adorable kids that many will connect with. Others will be put off by the disjointed story, the inability to be grounded or magical and a poorly placed score.
