I am so thrilled to go to Sundance this year, and I can't wait to see as many movies as possible while I'm out there! For the next few days I'll be highlighting some of the films I'm most curious to see. Today's spotlight: Phoebe in Wonderland.
Elle Fanning, Felicity Huffman, and Patricia Clarkson come together in Phoebe in Wonderland, what looks like a tender childhood drama all about that period of time during one's youth when it's painful to accept that the real world is, sadly, nothing like a fairy tale. The plot description states, "Confounded by her clashes with the rule-obsessed world around her, Phoebe (Fanning) seeks enlightenment from her unconventional drama teacher (Clarkson), even as her brilliant but anguished mother (Huffman) looks to Phoebe herself for inspiration."
You can check out a scene from Phoebe in Wonderland in which this brilliant/anguished mother has a heart-to-heart with her daughter if you read more.
