The second screen adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story about a young boy who wins the chance to visit confectionary king Willy Wonka’s spellbinding chocolate factory, gets a colourful and outlandish spin from eccentric director Tim Burton. A story about class as much as it is about imagination, the young Charlie, who comes from a poverty-stricken family, stands out amongst the rest of the winners all eager to win a mystery prize at the end of the factory tour. All from more privileged families, there is the gluttonous Augustus Gloop, the spoiled and extremely wealthy Veruca Salt, the opinionated and bubble-gum enthusiast Violet Beauregarde, and Mike Teavee, a strange boy with an obsession with video games. Who will be the winner of a lifetime supply of chocolate and Willy Wonka’s special prize? This memorable family film contains all the charm and oddities of Roald Dahl’s original stories and includes a valuable moral tale for young audiences.
