5.0 out of 5 stars MATCHLESS ALICE 7 Feb 2008
WHERE IS THE REGION 2 DVD OF THIS MAGICAL FILM ????????? How much longer do we have to wait ?

Well, here are some answers, and a story. But we're getting there.

UPDATE (2014): 'Dreamchild' is getting a UK Region 2 DVD release in early 2015 by a label called 101 Films: ... they have confirmed this info.

Studio Canal holds the rights to the film, apparently.

UPDATE (December 2012):
Mr Lloyd, in the following comment below, has been very persistent, and sends the following quote from Studio Canal.

"It would seem that we do hold the UK DVD distribution rights, but as stated before we have no current plans to release this due to the restoration work that would be involved. We do not hold the US distribution rights so have no access to any materials which have been released in America. Obtaining those restored materials would be of a considerable financial cost to us as they are owned by a completely to which we have no affiliation. Any materials purchased would still need further work being done to them in order to make them compatible with UK standards. As stated before, this is an expensive process and at the moment we have to prioritize the bigger titles in our catalogue, but once again we do appreciate your interest and the information given, and will certainly keep you updated if the title become available in the future. Regards, StudioCanal."

Mr Lloyd goes on to say:
"If you want this film to be released on DVD in the UK then you need to contact StudioCanal, who currently hold the home video distribution rights. The more people who e-mail requesting that DREAMCHILD be released, the more likely it is that it will be seriously considered ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Alice in WonderFilm 14 July 2007
A picturesque and thoughtful movie for grownups whose plot shifts effortlessly between three venues: the 1860s when Lewis Carroll introduced the Wonderland tales to young, dark-haired Alice Liddell and her sisters - the 1930s when the aged Alice Liddell Hargreaves visited the U.S. just months before her death - and the surreal story-world of Alice in Wonderland with the characters that Alice meets portrayed by wickedly designed Jim Henson puppets.

Four affecting performances stand out in my memory: Coral Browne as the starchy old Alice - Amelia Shankley as the young self centered Alice - Nicola Cowper as old Alice's timid companion who becomes the love interest to a young American reporter (portrayed by Peter Gallagher) - and, in a small role, Caris Corfman as a wistful newspaper reporter. But those are only a few of many fine British and American actors (fine - except for one brief but noticeable exception - maybe more noticeable to Americans).

My only major gripe is Ian Holm's age. Holm was in his early 50s when he portrayed Rev Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll's real name), while the real Dodgson was closer to 30 when he first told Alice the stories. Ian Holm's age and characterization exaggerate the frightful possibility of his impure interest in the young children he befriended.

On the positive side, this film took great care in evoking the respective time periods with beautiful sets, costumes and photography that compliment the deeply-felt emotional arc of old Alice revisiting her memories of Dodgson. As a result, the movie is itself an exotic journey into other times and places - with Alice, once again, as protagonist.
