Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Part of the Summer Fridays
“Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination”
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is strange yet comforting, full of narrative detours that don’t always work but express the film’s uniqueness.
THE FILM SERIES AT GORTON PRESENTS:
When they find prized Golden Tickets inside their Wonka candy bars, five lucky children win a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the legendary candy factory run by the mysterious Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder). Now, on a whirlwind tour of Willy’s incredible, edible realm of milk chocolate waterfalls, elfish Oompa-Loompas and industrial-sized sugar-coated creations, one very special boy will discover the sweetest secret of all: a generous, loving heart.
Promoted as a family musical, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is more of a black comedy, perversely faithful to the spirit of Roald Dahl’s original book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Directed by Mel Stuart
Written by Roald Dahl (screenplay & book)
Starring Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson & Peter Ostrum
