Keisha Reviews FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM12:20 PM
Director: David Yates
Writer: J.K. Rowling
"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is a wonderful leap back into J.K. Rowlings magical world, but it’s not what you might think.
Expelled from Hogwarts in England, Schamander travels overseas to America with a tiny brown suitcase full of magical creatures.
There are familiar elements, like the constant struggle for witches and wizards to hide magic from no-majs.
According to director David Yates, he’ll play a major part in the next movies to come. Here, might call him the secondary star. His haunting portrayal of an abused, repressed teen manifests physically in his crouched stance and the submissive way he interacts with Auror Percival Graves (Colin Farrell), whom he’s covertly working with.
“Credence…maybe want isn’t a sufficient word for him because he’s really seeking all this stuff that he desperately needs and Graves is sort of dispensing those things to keep Credence in his trap,” Ezra said. It’s one that feels inappropriate to watch, but at the same time, you can’t turn away.And that’s the biggest difference between this story and the one about the Boy Who Lived.
In other words, what are you contemplating? You know this movie will be great!
