Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking-Glass and The Queen’s gambit

Postby bozho » Sun Dec 27, 2020 12:44 pm

Hi everybody!
This is a bit out of topic but I hope the administrator will be not so much angry to me. After all it's still about Alice.
Today somebody enlighten me how the new Netflix series The Queen’s gambit is related to Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking-Glass and actually the series can be considered as a modern version of Alice.
Beth Harmon falls, figuratively speaking into the basement with m-r Shaibel where she founds her own Wonderland like Alice fails into the rabbit’s hole.
There is the Mad Hatter - Benny with his unchanging hat and eccentric behavior.
Tweedledum and Tweedledee also present as Matt and Mike.
There is even the broken clock!
Beth had to pas through 7 squares – the 7 episodes as a pawn to become a Queen like Alice in Through the Looking-Glass!
So, I’ve not read the book on which the series are based ant don’t know how it is, but the creators of the movie definitely had in their minds Alice.
