This week we bring you “Come Away”, a fantasy drama as our movie of the week.
Directed by Brenda Chapman, the movie stars David Oyelowo, Anna Chancellor, Clarke Peters, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Caine, David Gyasi, Derek Jacobi, and Angelina Jolie. The movie takes us back to the stories of Peter Pan and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
In this imaginative origin story of two of the most beloved characters in literature – Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland – eight-year-old Alice, her mischievous brother Peter and their brilliant older sibling David let their imaginations run wild one blissful summer in the English countryside.
Encouraged by their parents Jack and Rose, the kids’ make-believe tea parties, sword fights and pirate ship adventures come to an abrupt end when tragedy strikes. Peter, eager to prove himself a hero to his grief-stricken and financially-struggling parents, journeys with Alice to London, where they try to sell a treasured heirloom to the sinister pawnshop owner known as C.J. Returning home, Alice seeks temporary refuge in a wondrous rabbit hole while Peter permanently escapes reality by entering a magical realm as leader of the “Lost Boys.”
Fans can look forward to watching the movie when it debuts this week, April 2 at local cinemas.
