DreamChild

1985

Gavin Miller
Director

The real Alice-in-Wonderland, Alice Hargreaves visits New York for the centenary celebrations of the book. While there she has to deal with deplorables and disturbing memories of the past.

Quite unique meditation on celebrity and controversy with Alice encountering quite alarming recreations of Lewis Carroll's' characters.

Although the American scenes ring hollow, film packs a wallop. Recommended.

Vidcaps from the sadly 1.33:1 Amazon Prime stream.
