The DVDs the kids will be begging for this Christmas.
|Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Cert PG) was the must see movie of summer 2005. This version of Roald Dahl’s glorious wish fulfilment fantasy (Most children would love their own chocolate factory after all. Actually so would I….) Starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, James Fox, and Freddy Highmore as Charlie, this Tim Burton (Batman) directed version provides a darker, edgier Willy Wonka than Gene Wilder's 1971 interpretation.
