An off-putting, misguided disease-of-the-week picture that tries to disguise itself as something else before finally coming clean. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- [The movie] resists being pigeonholed or easily labeled -- because, like Phoebe herself, the movie is brilliant and a little strange and wonderfully unique.

It needs the power of imagination to be done effectively and I just didn't think it was here.

Product Description:

Actress 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."

Product Description:

This heartfelt, fantastical story of a troubled, imaginative girl (Elle Fanning, The Door in the Floor) devoted to Alice in Wonderland explores the agonies of growing up as an outsider and the complexities of parenting. Oscar nominee* Felicity Huffman (Transamerica, TV's Desperate Housewives) gives one of the most powerful performances of her career as Phoebe's guilt-ridden mother. She and her perplexed husband (Bill Pullman, Independence Day) initially see Phoebe's unusual behavior as signs of creativity, but with the help of an unconventional drama teacher (Oscar nominee** Patricia Clarkson, Lars and the Real Girl), they soon realize that their daughter is in danger of falling "through the looking glass." *Best Actress: Transamerica, 2005 **Best Supporting Actress: Pieces of April, 2003
