(Creator of Brooklyn Fit Chick.com) and we are not afraid to tell it like it is!

Book Vs. Movie Podcast "Charlie & the Chocolate Family"

The beloved classic Dahl novel against two Hollywood creations. Which is better?

The Margos went deep into Raold Dahl territory with this exploration about how Willy Wonka came to being and the two Hollywood interpretations of this unique tale. 

In this ep we discuss:

  • The complicated life of the author and the tragedies he experienced throughout his life. 
  • The main differences between the book and the adapted films
  • The different interpretations that Gene Wilder & Johnny Depp gave to the role of Willy Wonka
  • Which we liked better--book or movie?
