Description

  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
  • Here's an event movie that holds up to being an event. This filmed version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,
    adapted from the wildly popular book by J.K. Rowling, stunningly brings to life Harry Potter's world of Hogwarts, the
    school for young witches and wizards. The greatest strength of the film comes from its faithfulness to the novel, and
    this new cinematic world is filled with all the details of Rowling's imagination, thanks to exuberant sets, elaborate
    costumes, clever makeup and visual effects, and a crème de la crème cast, including Maggie Smith, Richard Harris, Alan
    Rickman, and more. Especially fine is the interplay between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his schoolmates Ron (Rupert
    Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), as well as his protector, the looming Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane). The second-half
    adventure--involving the titular sorcerer's stone--doesn't translate perfectly from page to screen, ultimately because
    of the film's fidelity to the novel; this is a case of making a movie for the book's fans, as opposed to a transcending
    film. Writer Steve Kloves and director Chris Columbus keep the spooks in check, making this a true family film, and with
    its resourceful hero wide-eyed and ready, one can't wait for Harry's return. Ages 8 and up. --Doug Thomas
