Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Unique director Tim Burton re-teams with muse Johnny Depp bringing Roald Dahl's classic morality tale to the big screen once more. Reinvented and reimagined, this psychedelically dark vision of greedy children in hog heaven is eye-poppingly scrumptious. Young Freddie Highmore ("Finding Neverland") charms as the eponymous Charlie, and Depp relishes his role as the eccentric and reclusive choc magnate, Willy Wonka.
