Young daydreamer Alice literally stumbles into a grand misadventure when she falls down a rabbit hole in pursuit of a mysterious white rabbit. She finds herself in a surreal world populated by weird, wonderful and sometimes menacing characters, and her exploration only gets curiouser and curiouser…
THEY SAY: “The Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the White Rabbit, the Walrus and the Carpenter, the Queen of Hearts and other remembered characters are enchantingly projected as Alice strolls through her dream world to the accompaniment of ballads and musical nonsense” – Variety, 1951
WE SAY: It’s hard to believe that this was considered a flop upon release! With its psychedelic visuals, madcap characters and wholehearted embrace of the surreal, this is a captivating blend of Carroll’s whimsy with Disney’s deft adaptive touch.
