We went last night at 7 with teenage boy. He sat between us so he could hold the popcorn bucket. There were scary parts and swooning parts. I didn't realize they were breaking it up into two parts but that was okay. I liked the introspective flair to it-it wasn't just rushing from scene to scene although there were a few times I was like, oh, hurry up and speak. There is one storytelling scene that blew our minds-we all agreed it was our favorite-it looked like paper cut-outs and puppetry combined. I thought it was inspiring and really showed the acting growth of all three major players. Luna and her father were luminescent in their secondary roles.
post note: I realized upon further contemplation that this is the perfect HP comparison to teenagers-the feeling is moody, troubled and tangled.
