Alice In Wonderland (2010)
The siblings: Iracebeth of Crims, the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) and Mirana of Marmoreal, the White Queen (Anne Hathaway)
What puts them at odds? It’s the old story of one queen usurping the other’s throne. The Red Queen rules as a tyrant while the White Queen remains in her own castle, too afraid of her power to fight back.
One has a massive head and the soul of a toddler. The other is a punk-rock princess with a shock of white hair and an overly pleasant attitude that hides a spine of steel. You can see why these two don’t get on. Of course, it all ends like any sisterly dispute: with a whopping great battle, although admittedly few arguments outside Wonderland also feature a Jabberwocky. Tim Burton’s billion-dollar adaptation might hinge on the story of Mia Wasikowska’s Alice, but the warring women drive the plot and in Bonham Carter’s case, offer a lot of the laughs.
