Alice Through The Looking Glass
Alice Through the Looking Glass is a 2016 American live-action/animated fantasy adventure film directed by James Bobin, written by Linda Woolverton and produced by Tim Burton, Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd, and Jennifer Todd. It is based on the characters created by Lewis Carroll and is the sequel to the 2010 film Alice in Wonderland. The film stars Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas, Rhys Ifans, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen and features the voices of Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Barbara Windsor, Matt Vogel, Paul Whitehouse, and Alan Rickman. This also features Rickman, Windsor and Andrew Sachs in their final film roles prior to their deaths. In the film, a now 22-year-old Alice comes across a magical looking glass that takes her back to Wonderland, where she finds that the Mad Hatter is acting madder than usual and wants to discover the truth about his family. Alice then travels through time (with the "Chronosphere"), comes across friends and enemies at different points of their lives, and embarks on a race to save the Hatter before time runs out.
Alice Through the Looking Glass
While the first Alice novel took playing cards as a theme, Through the Looking-Glass instead used chess; most of the main characters are represented by chess pieces, with Alice being a pawn. The looking-glass world consists of square fields divided by brooks or streams, and the crossing of each brook typically signifies a change in scene, with Alice advancing one square. At the book's beginning, Carroll provided and explained a chess composition with descriptive notation, corresponding to the events of the story. Although the piece movements follow the rules of chess, other basic rules are ignored: one player (White) makes several consecutive moves while the (Red/Black) opponent's moves are skipped, and a late check (12... Qe8+) is left undealt with. Carroll also explained that certain items listed in the composition do not have corresponding piece moves but simply refer to the story, e.g. the "castling of the three Queens, which is merely a way of saying that they entered the palace". Despite these liberties, the final position is an authentic checkmate.
Then she began looking about, and noticed that what could be seen from the oldroom was quite common and uninteresting, but that all the rest was as differentas possible. For instance, the pictures on the wall next the fire seemed to beall alive, and the very clock on the chimney-piece (you know you can only seethe back of it in the Looking-glass) had got the face of a little old man, andgrinned at her.
She wakes up to discover herself locked up in a mental hospital, under the cares of Doctor Addison Bennett, who accuses Alice from suffering from "female hysteria." Her mother, who is extremely uncomfortable with Alice being in there, explains that, after storming Lord Ascot's old office, Hamish and the others found Alice on the ground, looking under the furniture, talking nonsenses about the "atmosphere," and then he ordered Alice to be locked up in there. Alice realizes that "atmosphere" was actually "Chronosphere," and as the Chronosphere is not with her in there, that it probably fell under the furniture as she returned back to London through the mirror while running away from Time. Doctor Bennett tries to shot a syringe in Alice, but Helen protests. Noticing that Alice's mother is not going to cooperate, Doctor Bennett brings down the syringe and tries to convince her that Alice will be fine while in there. As Helen continues to protest, a nurse pushes her away from Alice's bedroom. Taking advantage from the situation, Alice gets the syringe and shots Doctor Bennett, who passes out. Alice gets his keys and, with the encouragement of her mother, who orders Alice to run away, storms out from the bedroom. She is chased by the hospital staff, but is able to run to the roof of the building without being caught. There, using the skills she learned while in the sea, she jumps to ground, steals a carriage by claiming to the coachman that is insane, and drives back to the Ascot property. Without being seen, she invades Lord Ascot's old office again, finds the Chronosphere under the furniture, and then returns to Underland.
(NC walks up to the time machine. There is the sound of electricity crackling coming from the machine, followed by an explosion. When it clears, NC is seen walking through Burtonland, which is a beautiful, pastoral setting, much to his surprise. He sees green grass, flowers, trees and a running stream. Malice is also standing there, holding the remote control in one hand and her knife in the other)
(NC follows Malice while Walter and Dino Rob strangle each other. We then are shown the house of Carrotjuice (which, for some reason, has a Russian flag on its roof). Cut to the inside: the room has multicolored walls with various photos and pictures of rabbits and bunnies. Carrotjuice himself is sadly looking at a picture of ginger bunnies. On the table nearby him, there is a bust of Lewis Carroll and his book "The Best of Lewis Carroll")
(Alice sees a blue butterfly in the garden, thinking it's her old friend, Absolem, and follows her to Hamish's study with the looking-glass on the wall. She locks the door and reaches out to discover her hand can go through the mirror)
Pass through the looking glass with Alice as you journey through a new alternate reality world. The Alice Cocktail Experience is back for Season 2, which promises a whole new adventure, bigger and better than the first! For all Alice lovers, we welcome you back for our brand-new experience.
While Dinah washes her kitten Snowdrop, Alice lectures Dinah's other kitten, Kitty about manners after unrolling a ball of twine and tries to have her pretend she is the Red Queen. Alice continues to speak about a number of bizarre things and when she climbs onto the chimney-piece and travels through the looking glass. The chess pieces come to life but they cannot see or hear Alice, (notably when she picks the White King up to dust him off he's absolutely horrified and believes it was a volcano.) She finds the Jabberwocky poetry book on the table in the room and reads it only when she holds it up to the Looking glass as it is all backwards. She likes it, but cannot understand it. Deciding to observe the entire house, she floats down the stairs.
