Movie Info

The film is set in 1932, on the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alice in Wonderland creator Lewis Carroll.

Audience Reviews for Dreamchild

Living up to it's title a dreamy film of the aged Alice's half memories of her childhood and Lewis Carroll interwoven with sequences of animated characters from the story and her present day, the 30's, trip to receive an honorary degree. Nice sense of time and place and a truly lovely performance by Coral Browne as the grownup Alice.
