As the one-year anniversary of Gene Wilder’s death approaches, we pay homage to his career by showcasing his whimsical performance in the title role of this film directed by Mel Stuart from a script penned by Roald Dahl, who also wrote the book. We follow Charlie as he joins a select group of lucky children who found Golden Tickets and won a tour of the candy factory run by the reclusive, eccentric Wonka and his Oompa Loompas. Although fantastical in its visuals and story, the themes of the film remind us that the sweetest rewards in life come to those with a heart made of gold, putting others before themselves.
