(Chris Columbus. L’S/ITK. 200l ) Daniel Radcliffe. Robbie Coltrane. Maggie Smith. John (‘leese. Richard Harris, Julie Walters. l52 mins. Columbus has remained true not just to the spirit but. in many cases. the letter ofJ.K. Rowling's novel. With only the occasional nip and tuck. the filth follows closely the tale of orphan boy Harry. who grows up in suburbia little realising that he's of wizard stock. Like the novel. the film is unsentimental. with no hint of icky whimsy. Rather. it is sustained by a set of superbly dry performances by the all-British cast and rewarded by the true. well-earned emotion of an honourable quest successfuliy fought. General release.

The film describes the friendship of three eleven- year-olds and a life-changing moment in their youth — the appearance of Ted Brautigan (Hopkins). a secretive though kindly man on the run from government agents. Nice performances all round. although adapting just the first third of King's book is too modest a goal. (ieneral release.

Matnet is back on home-turf. offering tip a noirish world of cons and scams. while his trademark charged dialogue is still intact. Yet.
