Storyline

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 Anonymous

A Modern British Interpretation
23 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.)
