Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
Young Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), orphaned as an infant and raised by his horrible aunt and uncle, discovers on his 11th birthday that he is anything but ordinary. Harry is a fledgling wizard who has been accepted to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Spells, charms and Quidditch (every young wizard's favourite sport) keep the adventures flying thick and fast for Harry as he attempts to uncover the truth behind his parents' demise.
Richard Harris, Maggie Smith and Robbie Coltrane add zest to a stellar supporting cast in the first instalment of the blockbuster series.
