Apple has got its hands on an exclusive clip from "Phoebe in Wonderland". In the nearly two-minute clip, it can be seen that Phoebe, who is portrayed by Dakota Fanning's sister Elle Fanning, is staging one of the musical numbers in the family drama fantasy film. While she takes the stage with her friends, Principal Davis watches her from below and waits impatiently.
"Phoebe in Wonderland" is the fantastical tale of a young girl named Phoebe, who struggles to follow the rules. Longing to be in the school production of Alice in Wonderland, she finally lands a part on the production but her unconformable behavior jeopardizes her chance to star in it. Perplexed by her inability to get along with the rule-obsessed world around her, Phoebe seeks enlightenment and comfort from her unconventional drama teacher.
Exploring Phoebe's self-discovery and her journey to find acceptance, the ThinkFilm family drama is penned and directed by Daniel Barnz. Starring Elle Fanning, it features Felicity Huffman, Patricia Clarkson, Bill Pullman and Campbell Scott as well. Premiered in the Dramatic Competition at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, this film is slated for limited U.S. release on March 6.
