Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Wonderland is well crafted from the editing to the acting, but it often feels like a television pilot for a calculatedly hip soap opera."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"We've frankly heard it all before."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A consistently bewitching experience."
‑ Xan Brooks, Sight and Sound

‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice

‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"Wonderland's finest asset is its cast..."
‑ Carlo Cavagna, AboutFilm.com
"Winterbottom and his cast make the characters' individual journeys involving and rewarding."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"The 'oh, wow' irony of the street name seems to be the prime rationale for 'Wonderland' ..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Wonderland is a modest tale, but one that leaves a lingering sense of sweet hope in its wake."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"Arrestingly beautiful; you can practically get drunk on its fusion of movement, color, light and sound."
‑ Peter Henne, Film Journal International
"It's a wonderful feature debut script by Laurence Coriat, inspired by Robert Altman's Short Cuts and with a less sprawling nod to Magnolia."
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
