Mehso-so

I never fully loved the Peter Pan adaptations I've seen (Allison Williams ca-caw-ing, anyone?!), so I hoped it was a matter of poorly translating from the page. I can safely say that I just don't love the story. I've never had a desire to play mommy, so Wendy going off with Peter to essentially be a mom to the Lost Boys didn't appeal to me. There are moments of cute whimsy, but overall this isn't for me. There was a strange styling ⬇️
