Note: This is NOT a film for the under-10 set! Or for the 10-12 set unless they're very emotionally mature! If you need further information, I suggest you look within the spoiler tags for more info before bringing kids. This is an intense film.
Out of courtesy to others, please use spoiler tags until the Monday following opening weekend. If you read this thread later than that, you can pretty much expect folks to stop using spoiler tags.
I'll leave the honor of most of the spoilers to our very own Grumpy4, so I'll just tease with a couple until she's seen the film at midnight tonight.
My favorite moment:
McGonaghall: What are you doing?!?
McGonaghall: Is that a student?
Moody: Technically, it's a ferret.
I have to say, they did an amazing job with this film! It packs a real emotional punch, with the drama, the suspense, AND the comedy.
If you're wondering if your child can handle this film, I should warn you that:
Very early on, an innocent bug is tortured and killed in a dramatic and emotional way. It's actually quite upsetting.
Also, there are allusions to one character seeing another naked. Nothing is said outright, but it's very strongly implied by actions. Nothing the audience sees for itself, of course, but it's most definitely implied.
And if you haven't read the book, I should warn you that a key character DIES.
Okay, that's all you get for now!
