Arthur Bowen, the child actor who plays Albus Severus Potter (Harry's son) in the epilogue, can also be seen in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009), buying roasted chestnuts at a stand in Diagon Alley. At the time of writing, these two appearances are his only acting roles. See more »
(at around 1h 17 mins) During Snape's memory that Harry sees, after Lily is sorted into Gryffindor she, along with the other first years, are seen wearing the same robes and ties that Harry and co. wore during Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. When she sits at the table and gets introduced to James and (presumably) Sirius on the other side of her, they are both wearing Gryffindor ties and robes. Since they are both suppose to be first years they should be wearing the plain robes instead. See more »

It's beautiful here.
It was our aunt's. We used to come here as kids. The order uses it now as a safe house. What's left of us at least.

Muggles think these keep away evil, but they're wrong.
I need to talk to the goblin.

I was thoroughly immersed in this movie from start to finish and when leaving the cinema (twice in the last 24hours) I could only hear the endless chatter of comments like "That was great" and "Brilliant way to end the series".
Though, in my opinion, some key factors were missing or needed more exploration I think you'll find it's easy to clue on whether you've read the novels or not. Some previously main characters were lucky to slip in a line or two whilst some of the more minor characters sneaked their way up to the top.
The film was brilliantly directed. Music, lighting, script; everything was flawless. Some scenes had my skin crawling and heart racing for absolutely no reason other then the fact that it was utterly eerie, it was hard not to grip the armrests in anticipation.
Dramatic musical build up mixed perfectly with lingering silences in all the right places. Spots that would usually host a soft violin were left with the honest and real quiet so that you could wrap your head around everything.
My emotions were chewed up and spit out over and over, I didn't know whether to grieve, cheer, laugh or scream and neither did the audience I was with.
By the end I couldn't even think of the fact that it was the end of an era, I couldn't even grasp everything that had happened which is why I'll be going to see it for the third time within this next week.
You wont regret paying for the full experience with this one.
