ALICE

1990 / 102min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: WOODY ALLEN

CAST: MIA FARROW, JOE MANTEGNA , WILLIAM HURT

A lesser-known but wholly delightful entry from the heyday of Allen’s collaboration with the wizardly cinematographer Carlo di Palma, this magic realist spin on Alice in Wonderland stars Mia Farrow as a coddled Manhattan housewife whose tidy existence is upended when she begins to fantasize about handsome stranger Joe Mantegna. She seeks help from a Chinese herbalist, Dr. Yang (Keye Luke, Gremlins’ Mr. Wing and “Number One Son” to Warner Oland’s Charlie Chan), who in Woody’s world is a mystical version of an Upper West Side analyst.

Alice is screening as part of the series Imaginary Chinatown. Click here for more info.
