Description: PHOEBE IN WONDERLAND, which recently had its world premiere at Sundance 2008 and is based on Daniel Barnz's original screenplay, concerns a young girl (Elle Fanning) who longs to be in her school's production of Alice in Wonderland. After being cast in the lead role of Alice by her eccentric drama teacher (Patricia Clarkson), Phoebe reveals a unique talent but, much like Alice herself, is increasingly at odds with the world around her and begins to retreat into a world of her imagination. Though her parents (Felicity Huffman and Bill Pullman) initially see their daughter's unusual behavior as signs of creativity, they gradually realize that Phoebe is at risk of falling through the looking glass.
