Peter and Wendy

Diarmuid Lawrence

United Kingdom, Luxembourg , 2016 / 100 min / Luxembourgish Version / Adventure

Based on the novel “Peter Pan” by J.M.Barie.

A re-imagining of the classic Peter Pan story.

“Peter and Wendy“ is a spellbinding new reimagining of J.M. Barrie’s classic tale “Peter Pan“, told through the imagination of a 12-year-old girl.

In the presence of the Luxembourger coproducer Juliette Films.

The drama opens in modern day Great Ormond Street Hospital where twelve-year-old Lucy Rose is awaiting treatment for a serious heart condition. Before the operation Lucy reads J.M. Barrie’s novel of “Peter Pan“ to a crowd of sick children in the hospital, and she goes to sleep with thoughts of the classic tale in her head. Lucy dreams her version of “Peter Pan“ into existence and the story is retold through the young girl’s imagination. As the adventure begins, the story cuts back and forth between Lucy fighting for her life in the present day and the magical land of The Neverland, featuring Peter Pan and his Lost Boys and the dastardly Captain Hook.
