Perhaps it was Oscar bait, but it was equal parts quality and inspiring. Depp made a rare tame performance as Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie.  He charmed audiences once again as a writer in a struggling relationship who rallies around a single mother (Kate Winslet in a rare supporting role) and her children for inspiration. After spending time with children without a father, he writes the ultimate fantasy tale about orphaned children who never grow up past adolescence.  Depp received a second Oscar nomination for his performance.  Although not known for his wholesome roles, Depp once again stood out playing against type.
