A boy hopes to get a golden ticket to visit and tour Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory. Based on the book by Roald Dahl. Starring Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson, and Peter Ostrum.
This is a classic film that is beautifully made. Wilder is a quinessentially Wonka, from the unscripted trip to greet the children to his mischievous smile throughout the film. He’s a natural Wonka, a man who you can trust yet you aren’t sure you do trust him. The production design is fabulous; it feels like you’ve actually transported into a world of imagination. Then you have the wonderful soundtrack that adds to the amazing imagination of the chocolate factory. This film is worth the watch.
