June, an optimistic, imaginative girl, discovers an incredible amusement park called Wonderland hidden in the woods. The park is full of fantastical rides and talking, funny animals - only the park is in disarray. June soon discovers the park came from her imagination and she's the only one who can fix it, so she bands together with the animals to save this magical place and bring back the wonder in Wonderland.Written by
This isn't about an imaginative little girl's pretend amusement park with cute talking animals that are the true stars; it is about a little girl working through her fear and grief of her mother's life-threatening illness while the mom leaves her husband and daughter to seek specialized treatment in another city. For anyone touched by the threat of a terminal illness it comes like a slap in the face because ads make it appear to be a light and airy fun filled fantasy. There is no effort to cause her animal friends to connect with the audience; they are utterly forgettable. Nothing memorable here, and potentially hurtful for those affected past or present with life-threatening illness.
