The setting was very different from the original movie, but in a good way. I enjoyed seeing more of Alice's regular life before and after falling in the rabbit hole. There were a few similarities between the regular world and Wonderland characters. Her mother made a comment about the white roses that may seem familiar to those who saw the original movie, which the queen of hearts also made. The twins as Alice pointed out, reminded her of some boys she met, referring to dweedle dee and dweedle dumb. There was even a small similarity between Stayne and Alice's sister's husband.
The cast was also great. Among others, the cast included Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Crispin Glover.
Favorite Actor/Actress- Johnny Depp. He was perfect for the part of the Mad Hatter.
