IELTS Speaking topic: A foreign film

Describe a foreign film you enjoyed.
You should say:
what the film was about
who the actors were
where and when you saw it
and explain why you enjoyed this film.

Well, the foreign film that I really enjoy is Finding Neverland. You probably watched it too.

It tells a story of Barrie, a Scottish play writer develops a strong friendship with the widowed Sylvia and her four young sons whose imaginative behaviour gives him ideas. He incorporates them into a play about boys who do not want to grow up. The play, Peter Pan, proves to be a huge success after Sylvia becomes increasingly weak from an unidentified illness, so Barrie arranges to have an play performed in her home. She dies shortly afterwards, and Barrie finds that her will is to have him and her mother look after the boys.

I guess that Finding Neverland is a warm, heartfelt drama with an engaging story. Johnny Depp played the lead as Barrie, and Kate Winslet played opposite of him. I believe they had terrific chemistry on screen. I downloaded this film from the Internet last year, and watched it at home in my bed on TV.

Finding Neverland is a simple story, but in the tragic and painful ending, it digs under the skin of everyday life to ask a big question that as we grow up, we left behind too much innocence in the childhood, which touches on the deepest emotions of normal people.
