With her life at a crossroads, 25 year old Sophie Conway returns home to the small town she always wanted to forget.

An American law student in London. Knocked down by a black cab, she wakes with amnesia in a world that's a million miles from home - Wonderland. We follow her adventures as she's dragged through an underworld filled with twisted individuals and the lowest low-lifers, by the enigmatic cab driver, Whitey. She needs to find out who she is, where she's from and use what wits she has left to get back home in one piece. As her journey progresses she discovers nothing is what it seems, realizes that fate and life are terminally entwined, and finds true love lurking in the unlikeliest place. Written by

I don't usually write reviews, but I feel the negative reviews given to this film are quite biased and not objective. Most people hold to heart the traditional tale of the classic: "Alice in Wonderland". If you are one of these people and are expecting a nice, warm and fuzzy remake - please stay clear! This is not how this iteration is intended.
This film is (to what I perceive) a cult twisted vision on what Alice in Wonderland might have been if she had ingested a little more than a bottle of shrinking potion and more like what you might buy on the streets of Amsterdam.
Featuring hookers, gangsters, a Bob Marley wannabe (as the Caterpillar) and DJ Felix Chester as the Cheshire Cat, this twisted rehash is one that deserves its place next to the rest of the Alice in Wonderland legends.
