“Alice Through the Looking Glass” film plot:
Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) has spent the past three years living her dream and sailing the high seas as captain of her own ship. Upon her return to London, she finds that, while much has changed in her absence, the antiquated views as to women’s role in society still remain and the future she envisioned for herself may no longer be possible. While attending a reception at the home of Lord Ascot, Alice causes a scene and flees to the parlor, where she spots Absolem (Alan Rickman), who is now a blue Monarch butterfly, and follows him to a magical looking glass, through which she is able to return to the fantastical realm of Underland. There, she is reunited with her friends the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry), the dormouse (Barbara Windsor), the March Hare (Paul Whitehouse), Tweedledee and Tweedledum (Matt Lucas) and the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), who, unfortunately, is not himself. Or as the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen) says, “The Hatter’s the matter.” You’ve been gone too long, Alice. There are matters which might benefit from your attention. Friends cannot be neglected…hurry.
“Save the Hatter”
Convinced his family is still alive, the Hatter has lost his Muchness, and Mirana (Anne Hathaway), the White Queen, needs Alice’s help. In order to save him, Alice must seek out Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen). A peculiar creature that is part human, part clock, Time lives in a void of infinitude and possesses the Chronosphere, a metallic globe which Alice must borrow in order to go back in time and save the Hatter’s family. Meanwhile, Iracebeth (Helena Bonham Carter) remains in exile, having been banished by her sister to the Outlands, where she has befriended Time and is plotting to steal the Chronosphere for herself. Alice returns to the past, crossing paths with friends and enemies at different points in their lives, and sets off on a perilous race across the Oceans of Time to escape the Red Queen and Time and save the Hatter… before time runs out.
“Meet the Young Hatter”
Alice Through the Looking Glass is such a refreshing, entertaining and the perfect film for the entire family. The 3D effect are wonderful and will keep you clued to the screen throughout the film.
