Yes, we’ve seen it more times than Augustus Gloop has scoffed a chocolate bar, but we and our kids will never tire of the 1971 version of this film. There are genius performances (hello Gene Wilder), top tunes (we always sing along to The Candyman) and spectacular set-pieces (every time we watch it, we have a new favourite scene). However, we have come to realise that Grandpa ‘Free chocolate? I can walk!’ Joe is not a very nice piece of work. Showing at the BFI on Sunday 22 – get there at 10.30 am for digital film workshops, competitions and arts and crafts. More here
