“With a single gleam of his eye, Wilder pulls off more hints at a devious personality than all Johnny Depp's white make up, and bad wigs combined.”

Against all the odds, young Charlie Bucket wins a golden ticket to join Willy Wonka on a personally guided tour of his world famous Chocolate Factory. Giddy with excitement, Charlie joins four other winners on the tour, but once inside the factory the children's worst instincts come to the fore and all manner of sticky ends ensue.

This timeless feature stars Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka and is based on the classic children's novel by Roald Dahl.
