Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass - Anne Hathaway

Taglines: It’s time for a little madness.

Alice Kingsleigh has spent the past three years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London from Asia, she comes across a difficult decision that may determine what she’s going to do during the rest of her life. After re-encountering Absolem, she finds a magical looking glass and returns to the nonsensical realm of Underland.

She discovers that things are going very wrong with the Hatter, who is now acting madder than usual, haunted by past events that he refuses to reveal. In order to prevent a heartbreaking end to her friend, she turns to Time himself. Despite his warnings about she not being able to win a race against time, and not being able to change the past, Alice borrows the Chronosphere, a time device that everyone (including the now banished Red Queen) wants, and winds up returning to the past.

As she witnesses the hits and misses of friends (and enemies) during their lives, discovering how it prompted them to their current states in the present, Alice may learn how to solve not only the problem with the Hatter, but her own back in London – but only if she can win the race against the ticking Chronosphere.

Alice Through the Looking Glass is an American adventure-fantasy film directed by James Bobin, written by Linda Woolverton and produced by Tim Burton.
