Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

2005 | PG | 110 mins

Charlie Bucket is a young boy living in poverty with his family when he, by chance, wins an exclusive tour of the mysterious Wonka Chocolate Factory. Along with his Grandpa Joe, he enters the factory, guided by its brilliant but eccentric owner, who has a hidden motive behind hosting such an event…

Starring: Johnny Depp | Freddie Highmore | David Kelly | Helena Bonham Carter 

Directed: Tim Burton

Screenplay: John August

Produced: Brad Grey | Richard D. Zanuck


THEY SAY: [Burton’s] best work in years. If all the laughs come from Depp, who gives Willy the mannerisms of a classic Hollywood diva, the film’s heart comes from Highmore, a gifted young performer whose performance is sincere, deep and unforced in a way that’s rare in a child actor.” – Nick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 2005

WE SAY: Closer to the source material than the original film version, and decorated with Burton’s inimitable trademark flair and whimsy, this is a charming reimagining of the classic children’s tale that will leave you hungry for more.
