                Plot Summary

• In stifling Edwardian London, Wendy Darling (Rachel
  Hurd-Wood) mesmerizes her brothers every night
  with bedtime tales of swordplay, swashbuckling and
  the fearsome Captain Hook (Jason Issacs). But the
  children become the heroes of an even greater story,
  when Peter Pan (Jeremy Sumpter) flies into their
  nursery one night and leads them over moonlit
  rooftops through a galaxy of stars and to the lush
  jungles of Never Land where an ongoing war with the
  evil Pirate Captain Hook is taking place. Wendy and
  her brothers join Peter and the Lost Boys in an
  exhilarating life ~ free of grown-up rules ~ while also
  facing the inevitable showdown with Hook and his
  bloodthirsty pirates.

• “But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put

• Mrs. Darling: There are many different kinds of bravery.
  There’s the bravery of thinking of others before one’s self.
  Now, your father has never brandished a sword nor … nor fired a
  pistol, thank heavens. But he has made many sacrifices for
  his family, and put away many dreams.

• Michael: Where did he put them?

• Mrs Darling: He put them in a drawer. And sometimes, late at
  night, we take them out and admire them. But it gets harder
  and harder to close the drawer … and he does. And that is why
  he is brave.

• “You called that a favour?”

• Smee: Pan did you a favour, did he, Captain?

• Hook: A favour? He threw my hand to a

  followed me ever since, licking its lips for the
  rest of me ….. YOU CALL THAT A FAVOUR?
