Aro Recommended Phoebe in Wonderland


USA 2008, 96 minutes
Dir. Daniel Barnz
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Family, Drama / Fantasy

Topics: Mental Health.


Aroview: Affecting drama starring Elle Fanning (Dakota's little sister) as an gifted but unstable young girl who retreats into the fantastical world of Alice in Wonderland to escape the restrictions and trials of everyday life.

Preaching tolerance and freewheeling imagination as the antidote to conformity, this explores some of the murkier aspects of mental illness with admirable integrity, even though it sometimes succumbs to overly simplistic thinking. Belying her tender age, Fanning outshines an accomplished cast with a captivatingly nuanced performance.
