Re: [xmca] Child Development in Film and Literature: Help!

How about "Phoebe in Wonderland"?

Review from the LA Times (2009) At first the young girl at the center of
"Phoebe in Wonderland" seems to have a life that is truly the stuff of
fairy tales, the happy dreamy ones. Where a birthday gift from her parents
is a magically wistful diorama of Alice in Wonderland, covered in lights
and jewels, handcrafted, not store bought, and just her cup of tea.
Phoebe, played with a bittersweetness by Elle Fanning in this overly
earnest and often difficult film, seems to be nothing more than a
delightfully inventive child who happens to have Wonderland all around her.
At home, her mother, Hillary, a darker and more tentative Felicity Huffman
than we're used to, is working on her thesis based on the Lewis Carroll
classic. Even the school play is on topic, with Phoebe soon cast as Alice,
happily tumbling into that surreal world of the Mad Hatter and the Queen of
Hearts, where up is down and nothing is ordinary.
