Alice In Wonderland
17-year-old Alice (Mia Wasikowska) attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. She runs off, following the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen) into a hole and ends up in Wonderland, a place she visited in a similar manner 10 years before, yet doesn’t remember. Wonderland was a peaceful kingdom until the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) overthrew her sister, the White Queen (Anne Hathaway). The creatures of Wonderland, such as the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry), Tweedledee and Tweedledum (Matt Lucas) and the March Hare (Noah Taylor), ready to revolt, wait for Alice to help them. With the help of the White Queen, the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and the Caterpillar (Alan Rickman), Alice starts seeing flashbacks of her original visit, back when she was seven.
I would say Tim Burton’s take on Alice In Wonderland will be a hit-or-miss kind of movie.
Some will like it, some won’t.
As for me it’s a bit sinisterly dark as with all Tim Burton’s film, but I loved it.
What stood out the most was the characters at hand.
I’ve to give props to the writers and Tim Burton for their effort.
You’ll be sucked with Alice’s journey in Wonderland, and by the end you’ll want more.
It’s a visual feast, do watch it in 3D!
