WANDERLAND Movie Review. #WanderlandFilm

WANDERLAND will be available to own or rent on digital HD on April 17 and in select theaters (NY/LA) on April 20.

Starring: Tate Ellington ("The Brave"), Douglas Hodge ("Catastrophe," "Penny Dreadful"), music prodigy Brandon 'Taz' Niederauer, Jack Dishell (The Moldy Peaches), Tony Award winner Victoria Clark (A Light in the Piazza), Dree Hemingway (The Disaster Artist) and writer/director Josh Klausner (Writer: Shrek Forever After, Date Night)

About the Movie:
Fed up with his humdrum, isolated life in New York City, 34 year old Alex (TATE ELLINGTON) responds to an unusual group email invitation from an acquaintance (DREE HEMINGWAY) to house-sit at a picturesque cottage in the Hamptons for the weekend. Following his GPS, he drives to the isolated part of Long Island, but discovers his cellphone charger is broken and that he’s completely cut off from the internet. A chance meeting with a woman on the beach (TARA SUMMERS) sets off a chain of events where he finds himself stranded with a dead car and dead phone. In his effort to fix his car and get back to the cottage, he ends up lost on a musical, dream-like "Alex in Wonderland” adventure, caught in a series of awkward and surreal situations with a colorful cast of characters. Without his phone to protect him and forced to interact with these people face to face, Alex rediscovers the magic of human connection, and ultimately discovers that the vibrant, musical world he’s wished for his whole life is there all around him, if he listens.

My Review:
The beginning of this movie starts out with everyone being so involved in their phones and laptops, and possibly in social media. A man named Alex in the movie is so lonely. He decided to take up a person he knows online and stay her in house for the weekend. What Alex doesn't know, is that he's about to partake on an interesting adventure. He meets lots of different people and runs into some quirky ones too.

Wanderland will make you smile, laugh, tap your feet, and more! The music in the movie is amazing! I especially liked the jazz song by the foot doctor!

When you feel lonely, put down your phone, laptops, iPads, and actually pay attention to the real life and people around you. You never know who you might meet or run into, or if you might make some new friends along the way, and, you might be happier too! There is music all around us, if we just stop to hear it once in a while.
