Phoebe In Wonderland

中文片名 菲比夢遊仙境
評分 ★★★★

聰明又早熟的小女孩Phoebe (Elle Fanning飾) 患有Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome (妥瑞症),此慢性神經異常讓她會做出一些自己無法控制的動作或聲音,讓學校及父母頭痛不已,而唯有在舞台上演出,當她享受自己融入成另一個角色時才會恢復正常。

這部電影利用Alice In Wonderland的人物及故事建構出Phoebe的心境及自我幻想,誠如Alice忽大忽小的身材體積讓她對自我認知感到困惑,Phoebe對自己無意的脫軌行為感到不安。戲劇老師(好會演的Patricia Clarkson飾)對她說:At a certain point in your life, probably when too much of it has gone by, you will open your eyes and see yourself for who you are, especially for everything that made you so different from all the awful normals. And you will say to yourself, “But I am this person.” And in that statement, that correction, there will be a kind of love. 這段話說完老師自己也默默的落淚,著實也讓我(感同身受的)鼻酸了。

Elle Fanning雖然沒有姐姐Dakoda Fanning小時候的甜美可愛,但演技真是天賜般的,太有潛力了!飾演Phoebe母親的Felicity Huffman將身為母親的不捨、自責及痛苦傳遞的好真實,當她面對心理醫師給女兒下的診斷,她激烈的反應讓人好是感動:”You are all so ready to label, medicate, and move on, as if a name means something, as if all the answers are in a bottle. I’ve seen it all around me, and it is a life of side effects and dull minds. Your professions just doesn’t like kids to be kids.” 這段話恰巧呼應了前陣子看完的一本書:When I Was Five I Killed Myself (五歲時,我殺了自己),一個從兒童角度去看大人世界的故事。

兒童天真、單純,當面對成人的思考邏輯及社會化的思想,勢必會經歷許多的困惑, 有些孩子被動化的接受外在的刺激和影響,也有些孩子會反動的挑戰用自己的方式成長,但畢竟都是心智未成熟的孩子,不管是否先天有何生理上的異常,都需要父母和長輩強大的耐心、包容和理解,兒童需要且該值得擁有的不過是快樂
