Elle Fanning @ 2008 Sundance Film Festival
FAWNING OVER FANNING
Elle Fanning, Dakota‘s little sister, attends the Cotton Market world premiere party for Phoebe In Wonderland held during the 2008 Sundance Film Festival on Sunday in Park City, Utah.
In the film, Elle, 9, plays a little girl named Phoebe, who struggles with her increasingly mysterious and obsessive behavior and her Alice in Wonderland-infused fantasy life. Phoebe seeks enlightenment from her unconventional drama teacher (Patricia Clarkson). Felicity Huffman plays Phoebe’s mother and Bill Pullman also co-stars.
Pictures of Elle and costar Felicity shooting scenes turned up back in May.

Barnz spoke very highly of Elle: “We went to Elle Fanning, who had made an impression on me in both Door in the Floor and Babel. When I met her I was immediately struck – as I think many people are – by this kind of luminous quality she has about her. In fact, later on, when we were in the height of our pre-production stress and wondering how we were ever going to pull this off – we did our hair and makeup tests. Elle’s face appeared on the screen – there were probably ten people sitting in the room – and there were audible gasps. It sounds like a cliché but it was true – she literally lit up the screen. It really reassured all of us, knowing that we had that kind of presence in the role.”
