REVIEW: Wonka (2023 Film) - Starring Timothée Chalamet

"Wonka," the 2023 musical fantasy film directed by Paul King, offers a delightful twist to the classic tale of Willy Wonka's chocolate empire. Starring Timothée Chalamet as the titular character, the film explores the early days of the enigmatic chocolatier in a whimsical and visually captivating manner.

The plot unfolds as Wonka, portrayed with charm by Chalamet, faces financial struggles and an unscrupulous boardinghouse owner, played convincingly by Olivia Colman. The film introduces the character of Noodle, played by the talented Calah Lane, who becomes Wonka's assistant and adds a heartwarming dynamic to the story.
