Come Away

Golden Globe-winner Angelina Jolie and nominee David Oyelowo (Selma) star alongside Anna Chancellor (Pennyworth) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Misbehaviour) for this fantastical blend of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland.

Before Alice went to Wonderland, and before Peter became Pan, they were brother and sister. When their eldest brother dies in a tragic accident, they each seek to save their parents from their downward spirals of despair until finally they are forced to choose between home and imagination, setting the stage for their iconic journeys into Wonderland and Neverland.

May not hold a candle to the stories it references, but it shines with an illuminating and aspirational light all its own.

The film can't seem to decide whether it's fantasy or allegory and whether its characters are fan fiction or flesh and blood.

Too dreary for youngsters and too rote for grown-ups, "Come Away" empties itself of magic.

I don't know what Come Away is supposed to be, what lessons it's imparting, or for whom it was even made.

It's hard to muster much excitement for a movie as stiff and serious as this.

You'll want Come Away to work a lot better than it does.

The second word in the title should perhaps be replaced with "off it". Or maybe replace the first word with "go".

It never quite tumbles into Wonderland, but the ambition at play - and a top cast of supporting players - is just enough to let Come Away off the Hook.

It smacks of a Ken Loach project rebooted by Nickelodeon, but not as compelling as that sounds.
