This is the one that started it all! Based on the best-selling novel by J.K. Rowling, this first installment in the beloved Harry Potter franchise is a fun-filled fantasy adventure from director Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire).

“A red-blooded adventure movie, dripping with atmosphere and surprisingly faithful to the novel.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Upon his 11th birthday, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), who lives in misery with an aunt and uncle that don’t want him, learns from a giant named Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane) that he is the orphaned son of powerful wizards. Harry is offered a place at prestigious Hogwarts, a boarding school for wizards that exists in a realm of magic and fantasy outside the dreary existence of normal humans or “Muggles.” At Hogwarts, Harry quickly makes new friends, including Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) and Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint), and begins piecing together the mystery of his parents’ deaths, which appear not to have been accidental after all. Featuring an all-star cast of legendary British actors, including Richard Harris, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, John Cleese and Fiona Shaw. (Dir. by Chris Columbus, 2001, UK/US, 152 mins., Rated PG)
