This strikes me as a bit odd. I understand that it’s a showcase for movies for young audiences, but I still see film festivals as being places to see art films – not so much for popcorn movies like the HP flicks.

Very nice for Italian film critics, etc. I am looking forward to this movie, even if it is a “popcorn flick”. It has some seriously excellent actors and actresses in it!

What’s the rating?? Over 50% of the target audience won’t be able to see this movie if it is rated for the over 15’s. What will it be rated? anybody know? This movie is NOT for kids, but I’m glad it is headlining the festival.
