[REL] Dreamchild (1985)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089052/

Very moody and stylish movie - whose plot switches between three venues - the 1860s when Lewis Carroll introduced the Wonderland tales to young Alice and her sisters - the 1930s when the aged Alice visited the U.S. months before her death - and the surreal world of the Alice in Wonderland stories with story characters portrayed by wickedly designed Jim Henson puppets

Four actresses stand out in my memory - Coral Browne as the starchy old Alice - Amelia Shankley as the young selfcentered Alice - Nicola Cowper as old Alices companion and love interest to the young American reporter played by Peter Gallagher - and - in a small role - Caris Corfman as a wistful newspaper reporter - in addition to many fine British and American actors

My only gripe is Ian Holm's age - Holm was in his early 50s when he portrayed Lewis Carroll - who was closer to 30 when he first told the stories - there were concerns in his time about the purity of his interest in his child friends and photography subjects - such as Alice - Ian Holm brings that frightfully to life

This film took great care in evoking the respective time periods - using beautiful set designs and photography - as a result - the movie is itself an exotic journey into other times and places - with Alice still as protagonist

Quite simply a stunningly beautiful and well-written movie with wonderful performances, scary moments, and an unrequited love.

This is a MUST have.

Thanks - not on EM

A HQ DVB rip. This is a beautiful one, featuring the lovely Amelia Shankley and the equally beautiful Imogen Boorman. Too bad the girls have so little screentime.

there you go:

Thanks Popdrome
I watched this recently and loved it. The whole film just brings you to the magical world of childhood innocence, and of the pure love felt by Lewis Caroll for the child - nothing nasty just love. And the way the characters like the Mad Hatter et al reflect the demons in the older Alice is just genius. This is truly a stunning film.

A TVRip (which by definition is an analog rip) to a DVDRip (which by definition is digital) with similar bitrates is almost always an upgrade. Usually only if the DVD is cut or really badly done is it not one.

Even so, before I posted I compared the two rips; the new one was clearly superior. I think popfrome woiuld agree.

I renamed the file from the archive so it was clear it was a DVDRip. How anyone who saves and collects ever keeps straight what they have if the filename is just the movie name is beyond me, I can't do it. Though a lot of people do.
