Storyline

Eight-year-old Alice (Keira Chansa), her mischievous brother Peter (Jordan A. Nash) and their brilliant older sibling David (Reece Yates) let their imaginations run wild one blissful summer in the English countryside. Encouraged by their parents Jack and Rose (David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie), the kids' make-believe tea parties, sword fights and pirate ship adventures come to an abrupt end when tragedy strikes. Peter, eager to prove himself a hero to his grief-stricken and financially-struggling parents, journeys with Alice to London, where they try to sell a treasured heirloom to the sinister pawnshop owner known as C.J. (David Gyasi). Returning home, Alice seeks temporary refuge in a wondrous rabbit hole while Peter permanently escapes reality by entering a magical realm as leader of the "Lost Boys."

Oscar nod for Michael Caine and Derek Jacobi
14 December 2020 | by gazgilSee all my reviews

Stand out performances by those two. Only joking. Seriously, the only magical thing about this movie was how, or why, those two even appeared in it. They must have had a combined screen time of under 1 minute. They could have literally got anyone else to fill those roles. I didn't study the end credits carefully but it must have said Old white guy, Other old white guy.

As for the rest of the movie, it gets a resounding meh.

A diversified retelling of Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Maybe trying to say too much? Not sure who the target demographic were. Not fun enough for kids. Not mature enough for adults. I fear we're only going to be seeing more of these PC retellings in the future.
