In this se­quel to Tim Bur­ton’s 2010 hit “Alice in Won­der­land,” Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska, Anne Hath­away and Helena Bon­ham Carter ful­fil their con­trac­tual agree­ments and Pink is fi­nally al­lowed to per­form an orig­i­nal song for a film.

Span­ish di­rec­tor Fer­nando León de Ara­noa’s first English film cen­ters on a group of aid work­ers (Beni­cio del Toro, Tim Rob­bins and Mélanie Thierry) who have to re­trieve a corpse from a well at the end of the Yu­goslav Wars. A darkly whim­si­cal film with strong per­for­mances from Del Toro and Rob­bins, though it’s marred by its 2D fe­male char­ac­ters. A Big­ger Splash
