About the film:

Nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actor ( Timothée Chalamet).

Based on the extraordinary character at the center of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl’s most iconic children’s book and one of the best-selling children’s books of all time, Wonka (2023) tells the wondrous story of how the world’s greatest inventor, magician and chocolate-maker became the beloved Willy Wonka we know today.

“an endlessly, intricately charming treasure trove of a movie… bringing a puckish innocence and spry, light-footed energy to one of the most famously jaded misanthropes in children’s literature”

—Wendy Ide, The Guardian
