Last week we were invited to screen Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass in 3D and IMAX. If you get the chance to see it this way, I would highly recommend it, it turned the film into a magical experience. I LOVED being able to see it with my family. I kept looking over at my girls to see their reactions during the funny parts, the sad parts, and the kinda-sorta scary parts. Here are my top three reason why you should go see Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass:
- Alice is an incredible role-model for young girls. The Wonderland stories take place in an era when women had little to no rights and the headstrong Alice does not abide by societies rules. With two little girls of my own, I am always up for a strong female lead for my daughters to watch on the big screen.
- The Characters. These characters are fun and funny and they make you want to look through the looking glass to join them. Time, as a character is really interesting and full of insights that you can take home. Personally, I like when movies make me contemplate life, Time did that.
- Majestic. Wonderland has always been fun and inviting. I don't know if it's because I'm an adult now and long for the innocence of believing in magic, but I enjoyed being transported into another land. A land full of magic, bright colors, fun characters and endless possibilities.
The film is fun and magical and the cast does such a great job of bringing these characters and their stories to life. The one thing that drove me crazy was the flighty movements of The White Queen's hands. You'll see what I mean.
About the Film
Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) has spent the past three years living her dream and sailing the high seas as captain of her own ship. Upon her return to London, she finds that, while much has changed in her absence, the antiquated views as to women’s role in society still remain and the future she envisioned for herself may no longer be possible. While attending a reception at the home of Lord Ascot, Alice causes a scene and flees to the parlour, where she spots Absolem (Alan Rickman), who is now a blue Monarch butterfly, and follows him to a magical looking glass, through which she is able to return to the fantastical realm of Underland. There, she is reunited with her friends the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry), the dormouse (Barbara Windsor), the March Hare (Paul Whitehouse), Tweedledee and Tweedledum (Matt Lucas) and the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), who, unfortunately, is not himself. Or as the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen) says, “The Hatter’s the matter.”
I just love P!nk and her new song "Just Like Fire" for the film. Check out the video below.
