I have been awaiting the arrival of this movie before it was written. Wondering how the Dark Lord will be defeated on the big screen. So of course I attended the midnight showing at the Star Southfield. There was not a long line to wait in til midnight as usual, instead they had people sit in the theater until the show started which I am sure everyone appreciated, because I know I did.
If you read the book you already know how this is going to play out, what we do not know is how they are going to separate the book into two movies. Let me tell you, the ending left me very distraught and waiting for the avenging to take place in part 2. I have always considered Harry Potter films to be beautifully written and carried out. Especially when it came to the scenery and cinematography, and the DEathly Hallows definitely lived up to these well known standards.
I will not provide any spoilers, but I will however share my epiphany. Harry Potter is so much more than magic and wizardry! I have read every book, and have come to the realization that it is actually a story that everyone can relate to. It primarily tells the fight of good vs. evil. WIth some battles being won by good, but sometimes the darkness will prevail. It teaches us that even in the dark light, can be found, but you have to seek it, and want it.
The book and movie has also taught me the importance of friendship. Because your family is unable to hold your hand every step of the way, you will have to rely on others, friends. People that will sacrifice their lives because the bond of love is that strong.
The audience also learns of loss. Empathizing and sympathizing with the loss of a mother, father, brother, god-father and friends. Love is a bond that is stronger than any weapon and the loss of a loved one leaves a hole nothing in the world can replace.
