Alice in Wonderland
A real treat! Tim Burton directs this magical, mystical 3D extravaganza! This Alice in Wonderland is a kind of mash-up of the two books, and takes a peek at both Alice’s past and future. She’s definitely a hero in this movie – go girl power! Johnny Depp stars as the Mad Hatter. Helena Bonham Carter is the villainess in the film, the Red Queen. Anne Hathaway is the ethereally good White Queen. The art direction is spectacular! So much to see that it’s the kind of movie you’ll want to see twice to make sure you didn’t miss anything. I went with a 16 year old girl who was seeing it for her third time, and she is likely to go back again! Music by the incomparable Danny Elfman sets everything off beautifully. My first favorite of 2010.
Alice in Wonderland- -
Alice, an unpretentious and individual 19-year-old, is betrothed to a dunce of an English nobleman. At her engagement party, she escapes the crowd to consider whether to go through with the marriage and falls down a hole in the garden after spotting an unusual rabbit. Arriving in a strange and surreal place called 'Underland,' she finds herself in a world that resembles the nightmares she had as a child, filled with talking animals, villainous queens and knights, and frumious bandersnatches. Alice realizes that she is there for a reason--to conquer the horrific Jabberwocky and restore the rightful queen to her throne.
