Plot Summary

Weaving together fantasy and reality, past and present, Neverwas is the enchantment filled, life affirming tale about a young man (Aaron Eckhart, Thank You For Smoking) who finds out his childhood fantasyland may really exist. Searching for insight into his father's (Nick Nolte, The Prince Of Tides) life and the magical place he wrote about in the beloved children's book, Neverwas, psychiatrist Zach Riley (Eckhart) takes a job at the institution where his father lived on and off. Once there, Zach meets Gabriel (Sir Ian McKellen, Lord Of The Rings Trilogy), a patient whose alternate reality is startlingly close to the world his father created. Featuring a critically acclaimed all star cast that also includes William Hurt (The Village), Jessica Lange (Big Fish) and Brittany Murphy (Sin City, 8 Mile), Neverwas is a magical and moving journey of discovery you won't soon forget.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This is the kind of movie where a madwoman's outburst leads her to throw a mug that just happens to be filled with gold sparkles -- which can then be photographed cascading down on all the adorable loonies, in slow-motion. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jul 7, 2010
