Wonderland takes a humorous and human look at America's first mass-produced suburban community -- Levittown, New York -- where residents were assigned to identical houses in alphabetical order. What began as a "cookie-cutter" community soon became something quite different.Wonderland premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and went on to win 5 Best Documentary Film awards, the Gotham Award for Best Independent Documentary, and a Cable Ace Award for Best Documentary. O'Hagan also received a nomination for Best Director of a Documentary Film by the Director's Guild of America.
