Movie Review: ****Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

This is a fascinating story of Alice (Mia Wasikowska) coming back to Wonderland to save the Hatter (Johnny Depp.)  This is a story of believing, and of making amends.  The two sisters, whose feud dates back to a stolen cookie when they were little, are set against each other.  The Queen of hearts, Iracebeth (Helena Bonham Carter), has been extracting revenge on people for many years, and her sister Mirana (Anne Hathaway) has often felt her wrath.  In this movie, The Hatter is missing his family who are presumed dead.  Alice goes back in time, and discovers they are not.  However in going back, she is breaking Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) and the whole world is in danger.
Of note here is the change of hair color of the Hatter.  At one point he is near death and his hair is all white.  The makeup of Iracebeth is also fantastic with her painted heart.
