I rented it because it was new. It turned out to be a real life "origin story" of Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan rolled up into one Live-Action Movie. I really enjoyed it. There is death and non-bloody violence and alcohol consumption: things that were in Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan, so it shouldn't be too bad for kids.

Don't know why I ordered this DVD? Surprised Jolie was in this. God awful wigs.

This movie was just beautiful. I watched the whole thing with rapt attention. The cast was exceptional and made it the magical experience it was. The story was so sad and moving, and the ending was striking. I loved how the fairytale story lines were woven into the narrative making the lines between fantasy and reality blurred.

Come Away is a literary masterpiece. I think English majors might appreciate it based on the elements included. I also don't think it's just for an adult audience. Unfortunately, kids experience some of the things included in the movie, too, and some of those experiences are a part of the original works included in the making of the movie.

This film is more catered towards an adult-audience, but was shelved as juvenile...The slow-moving plot and limited "action" sequences left me wanting more. However, David Oyelowo shines as the father, alongside Angelina Jolie, as the mother, with supporting roles by Anna Chancellor and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The children carry the bulk of the story as the audience discover the legendary tales of Peter the Boy who Never Grew up and Alice who tripped down the Rabbit Hole. One of the fun things for me in this film to discover were the vast array of homages and nods to the original stories and how they each tied in with the reality the children and family are facing. A very lush visual film and a nice diversified cast of characters, this is a great film to show off, solely for those reasons.

The movie was very slow moving. All along I was waiting for some action which never came. The children were excellent actors but the story didn't seem to go anywhere.

Well, I like this presentation very much. Fun. Adventurous. Some sadness. Magical. Imaginative. Great acting. All ages will enjoy.
