What are Rakuten Super Points™?
|The guilt-ridden mother of a troubled, imaginative girl devoted to 'alice in wonderland' initially sees her daughter's unusual behavior as signs of creativity. But with the help of an unconventional drama teacher, she soon realizes that her daughter is in danger of falling 'through the looking glass'.|
Editor's NoteActress Elle Fanning (younger sister of Dakota Fanning) proves to have wisdom beyond her years with her raw and vulnerable performance as the title character in PHOEBE IN WONDERLAND. Both delightfully vivid and thought-provoking, PHOEBE IN WONDERLAND sensitively depicts a young girl living with the increasing symptoms of Tourette?s Syndrome. Unable to fit in with her classmates, Phoebe throws herself into her school?s production of ALICE IN WONDERLAND and finds a confidant and mentor in her drama teacher, played by the luminous Patricia Clarkson.Both Felicity Huffman and Bill Pullman offer up stellar performances as Phoebe?s academic parents, who struggle to come to terms with their daughter?s illness while fighting to preserve the unique and imaginative child that they have raised. This story of battling the confines of the status quo--while accepting that there are problems outside of a family?s control--is one that will resound with parents living in an era that often questions whether it is overindulging or overmedicating its children. Despite such heavy-hitting material, director Daniel Branz employs a light touch, crafting fantasy sequences that are a feast for the eye. Beautifully decorated and exquisitely acted, PHOEBE IN WONDERLAND is a must-see for any parent or teen who wrestles with trying to be a unique individual in a world that demands that everyone be "normal."

|There is one reason to see Daniel Barnz's Phoebe in Wonderland and her name is Elle Fanning. First of all, yes, she is the younger and far more agreeable sister of Dakota Fanning, who rose to notoriety as Sean Penn's daughter in the 2001 weeper I Am Sam. But the younger Fanning, who just recently turned 11, gives a delicate and steady performance as the titular grade-schooler while much of her castmates go on autopilot or overplay their hand. Believable and engaging, Fanning nearly renders the ensuing bore watchable....read the full review|
