Reviews

TheWrap - Dan Callahan
Ver Linden never goes the commercial route here with her high-concept idea. Like Palmer, she stays true to her goal but does give the audience several satisfying moments that call for applause.

Screen Daily - Nikki Baughan
Like her Lewis Carroll namesake, the protagonist of writer/director Krystin Ver Linden’s bold and enlightening feature debut hurtles down a rabbit hole — but the alternative reality in which she finds herself is certainly no fairy tale.
80
We Got This Covered - Martin Carr
In many ways, Alice feels like a film looking to inform as well as entertain, by exploring the evolution of Black identity with unflinching honesty.
70
Variety - Amy Nicholson
The power of the film — and of Palmer’s phenomenal performance — is watching Alice grow into her voice.
65
Slashfilm - Ben Pearson
Palmer's performance, disjointed though it may be because of the script, is solid in each individual time period, and though the movie speeds too quickly across the finish line after taking way too long to get revved up, its metaphors and parallels to the struggles of today are effectively drawn.
