My Thoughts

 

I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did…it took me on a intriguing ride.  I don't really remember much of the actual tale of Peter Pan, but I didn't really need too.  This is part fantastical fairytale retelling mixed with a healthy dose of paranormal, and a splash of romance.  It's quite dark, and it thoroughly blurs the line between good and bad.  I think the latter is the reason I relished it so much.

 

Sex Factor:  None really, but it hints at some…sort of.
