Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Director: David Yates, Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, 2017 BAFTA Winner: Outstanding Film of the Year, PG-13
The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. “This highly entertaining twist on jazz age America breathes fresh life into the Potter franchise – and, with its themes of society divided and the persecution of minorities, the film finds itself to be perfectly timed.” —Wendy Ide, The Observer
