Nick and Ann dragged me along to see the Harry Potter film yesterday - in the gloriously pseudo-medieval Screen 1 at Salisbury. What a treat for the inner child! This is a wonderful film. I loved the galaxy of British acting talent on display. I loved the visual richness - the animated paintings, the echoes of Gormenghast, the Railway Children, and Oliver. The children were great. And I wouldn't have believed it was even possible to film a Quidditch match! I'm really glad I didn't miss this one - I'll be going back for a repeat viewing in a few weeks.
