Virtue movie illustrates: Honesty
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) is a wonderful movie about a young boy named Charlie who lives with his mother and grandparents in poverty. He wins a golden ticket, along with several other children from around the world, to tour the famous and magical, Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. During the tour, the other children show their unattractive qualities, which leads to their downfall. However, Charlie’s character shines through as he resists the challenge of temptation except for one slip-up.
This humbling scene shows Charlie’s honesty, kindness, and compassion as he faces the ultimate challenge of them all, an offer from Slugworth (Wonka’s competitor) for the secret recipe for the gobstopper, an everlasting treat. See how Charlie’s honesty is rewarded in the most surprising way.
Has honesty ever changed a situation for you for the better or changed you somehow?
