Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

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

Chris Columbus’ Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) dutifully adapts and condenses the first of J.K. Rowling’s best-selling fantasy novels, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (1997), after Warner Bros. Pictures took a $1.3 million gamble on the rights of the four books already published and was rewarded with critical acclaim and a record box office haul. 

This film oozes fun as you discover the world of wizardry, full of magic and mystery, with a young cast, led by Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson, supported by British stars, like Richard Harris, Maggie Smith, John Cleese, and many more. Well-established art direction, inspired costume design, and an impeccable score by the legendary composer John Williams make Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) an experience worth sharing, even with those who haven’t read the book.
