Kate Beckinsale, Ian Holm, Penelope Wilton, Geoffrey Palmer. Alice meets the Mock Turtle, Tiger Lily, Humpty Dumpty, the White Knight and more in this imaginative and inventive interpretation of Lewis Carroll's timeless fairy tale. 1998/color/86 min/NR.
A delicious combination of live-action, animation, and special effects tells the fantastical adventures of Alice as she returns to Wonderland, in this imaginative adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic story of the same name. Kate Beckinsale plays Alice, a young girl who steps through a magical mirror and is transported from the real world into an enchanted one of talking insects, nonsensical questions, and reversals of logic. Her journey is marked by mostly incomprehensible encounters with quirky characters such as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Red Queen and White Queen, and Humpty Dumpty. Beckinsale's Alice is a believable blend of curiosity, poise, and impertinence whose presence in nearly every scene carries the film. Other strong performances include Desmond Barritt, as Humpty, who recites a chilling rendition of "Beware the Jabberwocky," and Ian Holm (The Lord of the Rings), as White Knight, with a soliloquy as colorful as his hair. If, as Carroll states at the end of his tale, "all life is but a dream," this wacky version is one to remember. (Ages 10 and older) --Lynn Gibson

I love this movie, It's founded on what makes a good story. Not a whole lot of action but it is definitely wordy. It's a refreshing take on the classic tale.Published 14 months ago by James Cooper-Horn
