A UK shoot has just wrapped on The Lost Girls, a female-centred take on JM Barrie’s Peter Pan. 

Livia De Paolis directed the film, calling the shots from her own screenplay, itself an adaptation of Laurie Fox’s novel. 

De Paolis is also part of the cast, which includes Joely Richardson, Vanessa Redgrave, Julian Ovenden and Iain Glen, who plays Hook. Anna Patarakina is DoP; Gini Godwin production designer and Patricia Rommel is editor. 

The Lost Girls chronicles four generations of Darling women as they struggle in the aftermath of their adventures with Peter Pan in Neverland.  

De Paolis said: “I have always been fascinated with the hidden meanings of fairy tales so when I read Laurie Fox’s novel I was immediately taken with how she reinvents the Peter Pan story for a contemporary audience.  

“The Lost Girls ultimately speaks to women of all ages as it contemplates the contradictory human yearnings for freedom and safety in a moving and upbeat story of motherhood, enchantment and love.  I am thrilled to be bringing this film to global audiences.” 

Producers Sam Tipper-Hale and Peter Touche said:  “Making an independently-financed film in normal times is a small miracle; making one during a pandemic is an even bigger small miracle.  

“We were fortunate to have a wonderful cast and crew who all put up with our necessary protocols and also a heatwave in the United Kingdom.  We are also supremely grateful to the British Screen Sector Task Forces and the UK government who gave us the confidence to go into production thanks to their newly introduced insurance programme”.
