Movie Info

After the Wizard is a heartfelt, often humorous and always entertaining story about a 12-year-old girl named Elizabeth who lives in an orphanage in Kingman, Kansas. Like millions of girls her age she has read the beloved L. Frank Baum novel "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" countless times. But unlike other girls, Elizabeth believes she is Dorothy...and maybe she is. With Elizabeth referring to herself as Dorothy and constantly looking for Toto and a way back to Oz, the headmistress at the orphanage worries about Elizabeth and fears that she is losing touch with reality. Meanwhile back in Oz things have not gone well for the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman or the Lion. Oz is in trouble and they believe Dorothy is the one person who can help save their home, just as she did before. Only this time they have to find her. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for After the Wizard

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

[It takes] on not only a classic piece of literature but also one of the most iconic films in the history of moviemaking, a challenge that debut feature writer-director Hugh Gross simply doesn't have the resources or imagination to match.

August 10, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Writer-director Hugh Gross' wooden if well-meaning indie has its charms, but may leave over-imaginative tots feeling patronized rather than captivated.

Writer/director Hugh Gross is certainly giving it his best shot in creating a heartfelt, family friendly film.

September 1, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4.0 | Full Review…

Sweet, but muddled postscript to Oz with mild suspense.
