Netflix fantasy adventure directed by Francis Lawrence. Slumberland (2022) follows Nemo (Marlow Barkley), a young girl who discovers a secret map to the dreamworld of Slumberland, and with the help of an eccentric character as guide, Flip (Jason Momoa), hopes that she will be able to see her late father again.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Nemo: Dad, one story?
Dad: Alright. I got one you never heard before. It’s a place you can only dream of, where the whole world has turned upside down. And you’ve never seen anything like it.
Dad: Sweet dreams.
Flip: The name’s Flip. This is the world of dreams. Slumberland.
Flip: You can wish for whatever you want here. Jump from dream to dream to wherever we want to go.
Flip: Come on, kid!
Flip: Alright. We go through this door, everything changes. You slip up, you’re dead. You’ll never see the Waking World again.
Nemo: Okay. What are we waiting for?
Flip: That’s the spirit.
Flip: [to Nemo] Alright. Welcome to my world, kid. Brand-new dream, still under construction.
Flip: [to Nemo] Elegante. Spanish for “I look good”. I’m a flipping outlaw, so I don’t play by the rules. But here’s the rules. Rule number one, keep a low profile. You don’t want to get caught messing around in other people’s dreams. Trust me. If the dream pigs catch you, they will…
Flip: [as the piglet oinks behind them] Oh. My bad, buddy.
Flip: If the dream cops catch you, they will lock you up and throw away the key, doomed to rot in a dingy Bureau prison cell for all of eternity, till you cease to exist entirely. So, blend in.
Nemo: Yeah. Because you totally blend in.
Flip: [to Nemo] Rule number two, stay focused. We’re not here to have fun, okay? We get in, we find the next door, then we get out. On to the next dream. Our one and only mission
is finding those pearls.
Flip: Rule number three. We’re not friends. We’re not partners. I’m the boss. El jefe, okay? We do as I say. You got it?
Nemo: So, rule number three is just a bunch of aggressive statements?
Flip: Nobody likes a smart aleck, kid.
