“You’re a wizard, Harry…” And with that, one of the biggest, most successful franchises in film history kicked off—an adaptation of the first novel in J.K. Rowling’s best-selling series. From director Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire), Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is the story of Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe, in his breakthrough role), an 11-year-old orphan living with relatives who don’t want him around. After learning that he is the son of two powerful wizards, Harry is offered a place at the prestigious Hogwarts, a boarding school for wizards that exists outside the dreary world of humans aka “Muggles.” Featuring a massive cast of legendary British actors including Richard Harris, Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane, Fiona Shaw, Richard Griffiths, Warwick Davis, and John Hurt.
