Wouldn't Wonderland be so fun to visit for a day? Just think of how it would stretch our thinking in ways we can't even imagine!

I just came across this trailer and want to remember to check out Pheobe in Wonderland. It follows a little girl as she participates in the making of an Alice play. Gets at the idea of over coming challenges and self concept doubts that kids face as they reach adolescents and enter into the "world" where illusions of clique and cool start to seem real. On that note I might want to remember to check out the original book by Lewis Carroll as well to see where/how these themes originate. He seems to be an interesting persona who lived half his life as a well bred gentleman and the other half with a childish sense of wonder....not that there's anything wrong with that.

  1. I think this is a funny post because you have completely forgotten about this flick (thank god!?). Not enough explosions.....
