Question: Why was the film banned in Malaysia?
Chosen answer: Malaysia imposes strict morality codes for films, books, etc. and J.M. Barry's suspected homosexuality and pedophilia, although not portrayed in the movie, may have been deemed too controversial and offensive a topic for their culture.
Question: What did Sylvia actually die of? I didn't catch it in the movie, if it was there.
Chosen answer: Sylvia Llewelyn Davies and her husband died of cancer within a few years of each other (although he was actually alive during Barrie's relationship with his family).
Question: IMDb lists Ian Hart as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, when does he appear in the film?
Chosen answer: ACD was a close friend of JMB and they don't make a big deal out of identifying him. One scene he is in is the party after the first play opening. He is also the one who suggests to JMB that his interest in the boys might be a source of gossip.
