'Alice Through the Looking Glass'
(Sarah Sutton, Freddie Jones, Brenda Bruce, Raymond Mason, Anthony Collin, et al / DVD / NR / (1973) 2013 / BBC Video)

Overview: Join Alice on her journey through the mirror in BBC's fanciful adaptation of Lewis Caroll's classic novel! In an alternate world, just on the other side of the mirror's reflection, Alice finds herself in the middle of a life-sized chess game, where she encounters a variety of surreal scenarios and fantastical characters, including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Humpty Dumpty, the Red Queen and others.

DVD Verdict: Sarah Sutton stars as Alice in this "brand new" (well, 1973 actually!) adaptation produced for British television (BBC) of Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy of a young girl who discovers a remarkable fantasy world on the other side of the mirror.

By now you all know the story, but the cast included here is what makes this adaptation worth watching. Aside from Sutton (Alice), we have Freddie Jones (as Humpty Dumpty), Brenda Bruce (as the White Queen), and both Raymond Mason and Anthony Collin.

'Alice Through the Looking Glass' is one of the few retellings that realy does try to capture the essence of the book. With such a strong cast and set of performnces, it could hardly go wrong. Sure it's more surreal than the Disney version of Lewis Carroll's books, but being that there is humor and adventure throughout this quality movie, well, it shouldn't be missed! This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
