Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone ★★★½

Gonna have some fun while my family embarks on a Harry Potter marathon over the Christmas break and suggest unlikely directors who would have been a good match for each movie. Feel free to play along in the comments.

For Sorcerer's Stone, how about Sean Baker? He proved his facility with child actors in The Florida Project, and clearly has an interest in those living on the margins - which this first film, with Harry as an outcast in muggle society, gestures toward.
