Why watch this film?

Rarely have I been as surprised in cinemas as with Wonka. Nothing, absolutely nothing, excited me about the movie: the idea of creating an origin story for the character from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, as if it were necessary; the promotional material, which always featured scenes bordering on the tacky; and the choice of Timothée Chalamet for the role itself. However, the fact is that director Paul King (Paddington) managed to turn this lemon into lemonade. The film not only entertains but also enchants. Although Chalamet continues to raise doubts about whether he was the right person for the role (I even think Tom Holland would be more suitable for the role), the movie's universe is wonderful: from the way it embraces fantasy in costumes and special effects, through the captivating characters (loved Rowan Atkinson's priest and Hugh Grant's Oompa-Loompa), to the film's message, which works for the whole family and brings hope in gloomy times.
