Are you ready for visually stunning journey Through the Looking Glass? That’s exactly what is waiting at the theater for you today and it’s the perfect film for the family this holiday weekend. I went to the preview screening of Alice Through the Looking Glass with high hopes, and I have to say it did not disappoint.
Alice Through the Looking Glass is the based on the 1871 book by Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found there, the sequel to the original Alice in Wonderland. The movie is an adaptation of the book with a twist of a Gothic feel from Tim Burton and directed by James Bobin. It once again takes the audience into the world of Wonderland with the familiar characters we met in the books and the first movie. From the Red Queen, the White Queen, Alice Kingsleigh, The Mad Hatter, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the White Rabbit and even the little Door Mouse. The movie has top billed actors like Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baren Cohen and even Alan Rickman, which helps pull the movie together with the amazing scenery and outfits.
The movie takes you on the journey of what happens after Alice’s first trip to Underland. She finds herself once again drawn back to the magical world of Underland to help save her friend the Hatter. This time her trip not only takes her to Underland but through time to help and change how things currently area. The trip is a mix of figuring out who is actually good and bad, and figuring out what actually matters and the importance of family. Like the original book there is a moral story wrapped into the beautifully depicted movie.
You will find yourself drawn into the world of Underland again, and laugh often at one liners that are meant more for the older audience than younger viewers. There aren’t any particularly scary parts of the movie so small children should be fine with it, but it is definitely one you will want to add to your movie collection when it’s released later this year.
