Daniel Barnz's "Phoebe in Wonderland" will open the 10th RiverRun International Film Festival, taking place April 23 - 28 in North Carolina. Both Barnz and actor Bill Pullman will attend the opening.

"Phoebe in Wonderland" revolves around nine-year-old Phoebe (Elle Fanning) who struggles with seemingly uncontrollable behavioral issues and keeps landing in trouble at school, much to the frustration of her parents (Pullman and Felicity Huffman).
