This 2010 version of the Lewis Carroll story is more of a sequel to the original Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland story than the one we are used to seeing portrayed in various versions over the decades. This movie has a brilliant cast of many high-end actors and actresses, mostly British, with a few North Americans here and there, but it is truly a British tale. In the beginning, we see six-year-old Alice still struggling with the idea that her adventure might have been a silly dream, but her doting father, Charles Kingsleigh (Marton Csokas) assures her that even if she might think that she could be insane, that all of the truly best people are, and that it is perfectly fine to think of sic impossible things before breakfast. Fast forward to 13 years later. Alice (Mia Wasikowska) is of marriageable age, and her father has passed, leaving her as the heir to his shipping business. Alice is to be married, for all the wrong reasons, to Hamish (Leo Bill), the son of her late father’s business partner, Lord Ascot (Tim Pigott-Smith). Lady Ascot (Geraldine James) has been planning a match for her son for two decades, and will not let anything stop it from happening. There we see many family members that have similarities with some of the people and creatures she met in Wonderland many years ago. Faith and Fiona Chattaway (Eleanor Gecks, Eleanor Tomlinson), twins whom finish each others sentences. Aunt Imogene (Frances de la Tour) a dotty older woman who is still waiting for some exotic prince to whisk her away. It is a huge engagement party for an engagement that hasn’t even happened yet.
