Out in the park with his dog some time later, James encounters the four Llewelyn Davies boys and their widowed mother, Sylvia (Kate Winslet). He strikes up a friendship with the five of them, particularly Peter (Freddie Highmore, in his first well-known role), who has become very serious as a result of his father's death. James, Sylvia, Peter and Peter's brothers (George, Michael and Jack) proceed to have all sorts of wacky boyish adventures together, occupying almost all of James' free time. The relationship between James and Sylvia draws the ire of both James' wife, Mary (Radha Michell), and Sylvia's mother, Emma (Julie Christie); the former because she's afraid she's losing her husband to another woman, and the latter because the scandalous (though false) rumours about Sylvia and James are ruining Sylvia's chances at getting remarried.

* BrattyHalfPint: Michael at some points. He causes George's arm to get broken while he's in the flying harness by trying to take it away from Peter. Both then let go of the rope, making George fall.

**Jack also mocks Peter during one of his mood swings, and does (admittedly, understandably) not have much faith in Michael while the latter tries to fly a kite. Still, both boys do mostly seem like nice boys.

*** When Barrie met the Llewelyn Davies boys Peter was only a baby, and in fact Barrie's closest relationships amongst the boys were with with George and Michael. The youngest Llewelyn Davies brother Nico (himself completely erased from the movie's reality), acknowledged that George and Michael were 'the ones' to Barrie. Michael was the main inspiration for Peter Pan, despite the character sharing his name with his younger brother.

* BittersweetEnding: ''PeterPan'' is a success, but Sylvia's illness catches up with her. Still, [[spoiler:Peter starts writing again, James shows him the power of his imagination and Emma comes to a peaceful resolution with James after both are given custody of the boys].

* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: In real life Barrie was tiny - due, it is thought to psychogenic dwarfism (Barrie's brother David died when James was 6, and his mother made it very clear to James that she preferred the dead son who would never grow up). His short stature plagued Barrie's self-confidence and informed his work. Apart from that he was unremarkable-looking; on the gaunt side and head a bit too big for his body. Naturally, then, he is portrayed by ''JohnnyDepp''.

Freddie Highmore and Eileen Essell (who played the elderly Mrs Snow, one of James' biggest fans) went on to be suggested by Creator/JohnnyDepp for the 2005 ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' adaptation, in which they played Charlie and Grandma Josephine respectively. This movie also happens to feature three actors who played recurring characters in the ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' series: Creator/JohnnyDepp as James M Barrie / Captain Jack Sparrow, Creator/MackenzieCrook as Mr Jaspers (the usher) / Ragetti (the pirate with a wooden eye), and Angus Barnett as Mr Reilly (the actor playing Nana) / Mullroy (one of the two comic relief redcoats).

The film begins with the opening night of James' most recent play, ''Little Mary'', which flops. Charles Frohman (DustinHoffman), his producer, decides to finance his next play anyway -- James just hasn't written it yet.
