The Evolution Of Anne Hathaway
19. Alice in Wonderland (2010)
Tim Burton’s adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s children’s classic opened to distinctly mixed reviews, but it’s unlikely that anyone involved was too bothered about that, as it went on to gross over $1 billion at the box office.
It’s searching for a plot, and could’ve done with a gutsier heroine (imagine if it had have been Hathaway playing Alice), but the visuals are enough to keep you distracted for the running time. And Hathaway is spot-on as the White Queen: pale, poised, otherworldly and just a little nuts.
Anne Hath-A-Way with… Nigella Lawson impressions, as Burton instructed her to channel the domestic goddess.
