Your wandering attention may begin to fixate on other deficiencies: the flimsiness of the narrative scaffolding, the thinness of the characterisations and the filmmakers' tendency to mistake platitudes for poetry.

Zeitlin - who proves more sentimental about childhood than Barrie - keeps the parts whirring, casting about for meaning that never fully comes.

Zeitlin's film skillfully explores the despair and beauty of growing up on a dying planet.

Though the film contains some mesmerising visuals, the story does not correspond to the magical images on screen.

Wendy is undoubtedly self-assured and in-your-face, and the gorgeous location photography certainly has an impact. But it's wrecked by chapters so lengthy they become simply excruciating.

"Wendy" is fun for a while, but as it drags on, it becomes harder to follow - and worse, boring.

Every frame of the film is excitingly alive and freshly conceived, making it something very much worth seeing on the big screen.
