Synopsis

This 1921 adaptation of the classic fantasy tale by Lewis Carroll tells the story of Alice, a little girl who finds adventure when she enters the world located on "the other side of the mirror." In this magical world, Alice encounters numerous amazing characters such as the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Gryphon and Mock Turtle, the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. After experiencing many exciting, and sometimes harrowing, interactions with these "nonsensical" creatures, Alice returns safely home to muse on the meaning of life as a huge chess game in which individuals seek self-identity and try to make sense of the world. The gentle message of the story is that while the prospect of approaching adulthood can be scary, it is ultimately a rewarding and exciting adventure.
