What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this 1972 adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Aventures in Wonderland is not as frightening as some interpretations -- if simply because this Alice has a mind of her own. Alice saves a baby after the Duchess bounces it so hard that it cries terribly. Of course there's a lot of "Off with her head!" talk from the queen, but no heads roll.
  • Families can talk about how much media has changed since the 1970s. The sets in this movie are handmade with no computer animation. How do you think that changed the movie's look?
  • Do you find this version of Lewis Carroll's story frightening? What makes a story or a movie scary? What makes it unpredictable? What is the difference?
  • What kinds of characters would populate your Wonderland? What kind of an adventure would you like to have there?
