In 2023, the musical "Willy Wonka" will be released on wide screens, in which Timothée Chalamet will play the main role. Fans are looking forward to seeing their favorite in a new role - a singing and dancing wizard, skillfully weaving intrigues around fragile children's minds. You don’t have to worry about the actor, he will cope with the role perfectly, many are sure, because he has already received an Oscar nomination and managed to work in different genres with venerable directors. In this review, five of his best roles.
"Call Me By Your Name" (2017).
The controversial story of Luca Guadagnino about youthful love and difficult growing up. The first feature film for Chalamet, where he played the main role, keeping the audience in suspense for most of the screen time. Critics were delighted with the young talent, giving him an Oscar nomination at 22 and thus making him one of the youngest applicants in the history of American cinema. In addition, there were nominations for the Golden Globe, BAFTA, US Screen Actors Guild Awards, Critics' Choice Awards, Gotham, Independent Spirit, etc.
"Beautiful Boy" (2018).
In this biographical drama, Timothy played an addicted teenager - Nick. His father David (Steve Carell) does not understand how it happened, because the boy grew up in a normal family, after the divorce of his parents he communicates with both, studies well and has no reason to go into a “different” reality. Or is there still...? Critics appreciated the subtle psychological game shown on the screen by Carell and Chalamet, once again making sure that the latter can handle complex dramaturgy and problematic characters.
"King of England" (2019).
The military drama by David Michaud is based on the series of historical plays by William Shakespeare "Henriad" and tells about the ascension to the British throne of Henry V. Having radically reworked the source literary material, the creators of the picture offered the audience a controversial version of the work - a gloomy saga about military operations and their extremes. However, for the lead actor Timothée Chalamet, it was a unique opportunity to try on the role of a historical hero.
"Little Women" (2019)
Timothy reunited with director Greta Gerwig and actress Saoirse Ronan on the set of this adaptation of the classic Louisa May Alcott novel, with whom he worked on Lady Bird (2017). The plot follows writer Jo March and her three sisters as they face difficult life circumstances. Timothy adequately diluted the "female kingdom" of Ronan, Florence Pugh, Emma Watson and Eliza Scanlen. According to the plot, he is in love with the main character, but unrequited. Their relationship is interesting to watch - electrical discharges, vulnerability, beauty. And not the last role in this was played by Chalamet.
Denis Villeneuve saw Timothée as the only one who could play the role of Paul Atreides in his version of Frank Herbert's fantasy novel. According to the director, the actor coped with it perfectly - he appeared on the screen as thoughtful, restless and charismatic, the way the leader of the clan, mastering the desert planet Arrakis, should be. "He's like a crazy rock star," says Villeneuve. Everything played into the hands in "Dune": the intelligence hidden in the eyes of the actor, the silent charm and youthful appearance, which allowed Chalamet to play the 16-year-old hero at the age of 23. And of course, he will be in the sequel too.
