Wonderland is an ensemble drama that follows the lives of three sisters from a British working-class family who, though they lead very different lives, are all searching for the same thing: happiness and contentment. Nadia (McKee) is on her own and in search of a decent man to share love and companionship with. Molly (Parker) is an expectant mother facing all the uncertainties that go with that, and Debbie (Henderson) is still in search of her place in the world. (Laurie Sevano)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.30:1 DVD exhibits a wild, overly contrasted picture, with minimal definition and fine detail. Colors are consistently undersaturated, though appropriately balanced. Visual information is all but lost in the darkest scenes. Film grain is excessively perceived throughout, but the DVD picture well represents the stylish creation of the filmmakers. (Suzanne Hodges)
This soundtrack, though presented in Dolby
Reason #108 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I have been reading WSR for about two years now and especially enjoy the product review section. Although the other articles and review sections are generally well-written and informative, the product reviews give me an unbiased look at new technologies and products. Being in the home theatre design field, I look at many different sources for product ups and downs and find your magazine a very valuable resource in this area. Keep up the great work!!
