A modern take on the classic fairytale, Alice in Wonderland, set in the North East of England.
I have seen many different versions of the Alice in Wonderland story, from the Disney version to a bizarre Slavic one and many in between. Not long ago the SyFy network reinvented the story yet again (I believe it would have been after this). And still more versions are on the horizon (we are still waiting for the Marilyn Manson version).
Whether or not this is a great film (I would say not), it is a valiant effort towards again trying to update the story. Maggie Grace is a respectable Alice, and the characters they wrote in here were perfectly cast -- I could tell who they were supposed to be without even having to hear their names. (Maybe the names should not have been so obvious.)
