Wonka (PG)

Wonka (PG)

★★★★ "It may not scale the heights of his Paddington duo, but Paul King’s Wonka is a beguiling way to spend 116 minutes, perfectly anchored by Chalamet’s benevolent dandy. All together now: Oompa Loompa, doompety doo..." ~ Empire.

Based on the extraordinary character at the centre 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 tells the wondrous story of how the world’s greatest inventor, magician and chocolate-maker became the beloved Willy Wonka we know today. 

An intoxicating mix of magic and music, mayhem and emotion, all told with fabulous heart and humour.

Starring Timothée Chalamet in the title role, this irresistibly vivid and inventive big screen spectacle will introduce audiences to a young Willy Wonka, chock-full of ideas and determined to change the world one delectable bite at a time—proving that the best things in life begin with a dream, and if you’re lucky enough to meet Willy Wonka, anything is possible.

★★★★✭ Wonka is delightful and delectable, full of heart, charm and is brilliantly funny, with silly beats throughout. Christmas magic leaps off the screen. ~ RTE.

★★★★★ The most fun you’ll have in a cinema all year. The brains behind Paddington – plus a charming Timothée Chalamet – give Roald Dahl a Goon Show-ish prequel full of irresistible velvety sweetness. ~ Telegraph.

★★★★★ Chalamet's Chocolate Factory prequel is a superbly sweet treat as he leads a beguiling cast in a backstory that rinses away all sourness from Roald Dahl’s embittered chocolatier. ~ The Guardian.

★★★★★ Simply scrumptious, Chalamet is very much the star of the chocolatier's origin story but the flawless ensemble cast, including Hugh Grant as an Ooompa Loompa, bring this rollicking sweet treat to life. ~ Evening Standard.
