The zip up and kiss is one of my favourite scenes. No, it’s not the way they were written, but the films have always taken liberties – it is a different form of storytelling and as such, cannot be expected to remain true to every detail (though many of us wish they would have). J.K. Rowling’s writing was so vividly detailed that I don’t see why they would tinker with her narrative or vision for the characters but that’s what filmmakers do.
Bonnie Wright did an incredible job – I thought her voice and manner conveyed a deepening sense of self and awareness. She was very convincing. It’s been wonderful to see her portrayal of GInny progress through the film.
I think there were limits on the amount of passion the filmmakers felt comfortable conveying due to her age. That said, the actress put a good deal of feeling into her interactions with Harry, especially that kiss. It was well done.
I also feel that the awkwardness worked in the films. The book portrayal will always be my favourite, though.
