‘A delightfully magical tale, Timothée Chalamet delights in this fizzing Chocolate Factory prequel.’

Paddington director Paul King, works his magic again with this unashamedly effervescent musical prequel to Roald Dahl’s chocolatier showman. “Wonka” tells the wondrous story of how the world’s greatest inventor, magician and chocolate-maker became the beloved Willy Wonka we know today.

Timothée Chalamet is charming as Wonka, imagining his formative years. His
fresh-faced take on the role brings a puckish innocence and spry, light-footed energy to the character. With dreams of opening his own shop, Wonka arrives in pre-war Paris as a young man, however his dreams of making his fortune are soon halted as he discovers that the industry is run by a cartel of greedy chocolatiers. Not to be deterred, he finds himself becoming a chocolate disruptor, shaking up the stagnant chocolate business with his new chocolatey ideas. He faces cruelty and imprisonment but will he win out with the help of new friends?

With a star studded cast, this film is a genuine treat, not to be missed! (1hr 56mins)
