Alice in Wonderland script
Synopsis: Alice in Wonderland is a 2010 American fantasy film directed by Tim Burton from a screenplay written by Linda Woolverton. Produced by Walt Disney Pictures, the film stars Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Matt Lucas, and Mia Wasikowska and features the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, and Timothy Spall. Based on Lewis Carroll's fantasy novels, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, the film is also a live-action re-imagining/sequel for the 1951 animated film of the same name. The film tells the story of a nineteen-year-old Alice Kingsleigh, who is told that she can restore the White Queen to her throne because she is the only one who can slay the Jabberwocky, a dragon-like creature that is controlled by the Red Queen and terrorizes Wonderland's inhabitants.

Alice’s mother removes her own jewelry and puts it on her.

HELEN KINGSLEY:

I don’t know. There! You’re

beautiful. Now, can you manage a

smile?

6 EXT. THE ASCOT ESTATE - THE GARDENS - DAY 6

The garden party is in full swing. Everyone has turned out

in their summer finery. Guests play croquet on the great

lawn. Skiffs drift lazily on a meandering river.

Alice approaches LORD and LADY ASCOT with a fixed unnatural

smile. Lord Ascot is a stately, aristocratic man. Lady

Ascot is red-faced with annoyance.

LADY ASCOT:

At last! We thought you’d never

arrive. Alice, Hamish is waiting to

dance with you. Go!

She pushes Alice off and turns on Helen.

LADY ASCOT (CONT’D)

You do realize it’s well past four!

Now everything will have to be rushed

through!

HELEN KINGSLEY:

I am sorry. We...

LADY ASCOT:

Never mind!

She rushes off.

LORD ASCOT:

Forgive my wife. She’s been planning

this affair for the last twenty years.

HELEN KINGSLEY:

If only Charles were here...

LORD ASCOT:

My condolences, madame. I think of

your husband often. He was truly a

man of vision.

HELEN KINGSLEY:

Thank you.

LORD ASCOT:

I hope you don’t think I have taken

advantage of your misfortune.

HELEN KINGSLEY:

Of course not. I’m pleased that

you’ve purchased the company.

LORD ASCOT:

I was a fool for not investing in his

mad venture when I had the chance.

She smiles.

HELEN KINGSLEY:

Charles thought so too.

7 EXT. THE GARDEN - A QUADRILLE 7

Alice does a line dance with HAMISH who takes after his

mother, refined and immaculate with aristocratic arrogance.

ALICE:

Hamish, do you ever tire of the

Quadrille?

HAMISH:

On the contrary. I find it

invigorating.

He struts like a peacock. Alice laughs.
