What is with all the 5* reviews? Very average.,
This review is from: Wonderland [DVD] (DVD)
I am not quite sure about all the 5* reviews, and I am someone who loves social dramas. It did not bother me that the plot was depressing, I was just massively let down by the story as a whole. I didn't care about any of the characters, trying to carry too many stories means you don't really feel for any of them, a massive disappointment considering the cast. I see what the director was trying to do, and the music is quite well written in to the story, but it was just a big let down.
What I think is meant to be the main character is boring, her sisters are nothing like each other, and they all have different accents, with John Simms pregnant girlfriend (I don't know the actress) struggling to lose her posh accent quite badly.
This has been done before, and with much better delivery.
Bored. And this is my kind of film.
