It is one of the best-selling children's books of all time: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Thanks to Roald Dahl's funny, strange and unpredictable writing style, everyone learned about the iconic world of Willy Wonka in no time. But how did he become the world's greatest inventor, magician and chocolatier of all time? After Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp, Timothée Chalamet is the third to give shape to the eccentric candy manufacturer. In this imaginative film, we see a young Willy Wonka, who has all sorts of fantastic and, above all, delicious ideas; he is determined to make the world tastier, step by step.
British writer and director Paul King, known for the successful Paddington films, makes Wonka a real treat to watch, with beautiful music and impressive costumes. Besides Chalamet, Olivia Colman, Hugh Grant and Rowan Atkinson are also among the all-star cast. The result: an enchanting mix of magic, music, mayhem and emotion, brought with great warmth and humour.
