Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Harry Potter makes his debut as a new student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Rollicking good adaptation of J.K. Rowling's first Potter novel is bright and breathless. The kids are perhaps a little stiff but are well cast. Recommended. This and the immediate sequel are fluffy-bunny lite compared to those that follow and you might want to keep that in mind when you show these films to younger children.
