This version of Alice is more for the adults, I don't think children will be able to appreciate and it may not be completely appropriate for all children.

Briliant, but I don't think they had children in mind

I'm writing as someone who saw this repeatedly as a 7 year old in 1984. It was one of the first VCR tapes we owned. My father got it for me but did not bother to see it for himself and so he did not know how strange it would be for kids. After seeing this again today and as a mother of two (ages 3 and 5), I see that while it is a brilliant production with an awesome cast, I doubt it was made with a children audience in mind. There are some disturbing elements involved such as the Duchess holding, dropping and beating her baby, who eventually turns into a pig. If your child must see this, then please try to be in the room with them so that it can be talked about and the child isn't left to fend for themselves trying to make sense of all the nonsense that is in Wonderland, especially this one.
