What is The Film Wonka About?

Wonka follows Timothée Chalamet as Willy Wonka, who arrives in an unnamed European city with dreams, chocolate, and a touch of magic.

The film currently holds an 83% Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. While Wonka has its imperfections, the film’s spirit, optimism, and Chalamet’s outstanding performance outweigh any shortcomings.
