Livia De Paolis’ commentary on gender dynamics set against the backdrop of J.M Barrie’s classic tale.


Peter Pan might persist as a symbol of fantasy, but never growing up apparently also has a dark side. The Lost Girls chronicles four generations of Darling women as they struggle in the aftermath of their adventures in Neverland. Like her grandmother and her mother before her, Wendy Darling Braverman must escape Pan’s hold on her and the promise he desperately wants her to keep. As her daughter Berry then comes into Peter’s orbit, Wendy must fight to save her relationship with her daughter while reconciling her legacy.


Writer, director and, in this instance, lead actress Livia De Paolis casts Vanessa Redgrave and her daughter Joely Richardson as two of the Darling generations while newcomers Emily Carey and Amelia Minto play the young, modern Wendy who grows up to be played by De Paolis herself, complete with unmistakable, unexplainable Italian accent. Alongside British acting royalty (Redgrave at her luminous best here) it’s a confusing choice.


Based on Laurie Fox’s 2003 novel, it’s an ambitious concept but arguably one of the more original takes on the Pan legend.
