Storyline

Eight-year-old Alice (Keira Chansa), her mischievous brother Peter (Jordan A. Nash) and their brilliant older sibling David (Reece Yates) let their imaginations run wild one blissful summer in the English countryside. Encouraged by their parents Jack and Rose (David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie), the kids' make-believe tea parties, sword fights and pirate ship adventures come to an abrupt end when tragedy strikes. Peter, eager to prove himself a hero to his grief-stricken and financially-struggling parents, journeys with Alice to London, where they try to sell a treasured heirloom to the sinister pawnshop owner known as C.J. (David Gyasi). Returning home, Alice seeks temporary refuge in a wondrous rabbit hole while Peter permanently escapes reality by entering a magical realm as leader of the "Lost Boys."

User Reviews

Rigid, uninspired and forced
14 November 2020 | by sumtim3s00nSee all my reviews

The moment you start departing from the authors original idea is the moment you begin losing that magic the original work had. Be it music, scenery or casting. If you are more concerned about being a commercial for United Colors of Benetton then the story will naturally take second place and even Angelina Jolie cannot save that. People like to go to the movies/watch movies to relax, put their minds at ease and enjoy, immerse themselves into that fantasy world. It doesnt work with this film, as its first goal is not sadly storytelling. The show or movies that are best and have that "it" and are immersive are those that are true to the vision of the author because all the little parts make the whole great. Once you start changing the little building blocks the whole castle becomes unstable. So no thank you, I do not like when politics intereferes with movie creation.
