Alice and Wonderland = SOOoo beautiful!
I have just returned from an advanced screening of Alice and Wonderland and I am utterly convinced that life down the rabbit hole is far superior way to live.
We meet a young Alice Liddell and her Father as the night approaches bedtime. Alice shares with her father dreams of another world where cats smile. Worried about an impending madness her father reasures her that some of the greatest people are bonkers... Fabulous!
Fastforward thirteen years: Alice is drawn into life in wonderland on a detour while considering a marriage proposal. And so begins her adventure through a world of magic, beauty and deep distress.
I was slightly fustrated with the 3D effects. The IMAX screen was a neat experience and really enhanced forest scenes but I felt it flattened some indoor backgrounds and distracted from dialouge. Overall though, super enjoyable!
Tim Burton's adaptation of Louis Carrolls classic "Alice and Wonderland"is released in New Zealand cinemas on Thursday 4th of March.
