This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the “grandchild”. Norman also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.
Come discover a world of Pure Imagination with Willie, Charlie, and the other four lucky winners of the golden tickets and explore the magic of the Willie Wonka Chocolate Factory. This heartwarming classic will have you rooting for the underdog and proving the nice is always better than naughty.
