…In the cinema of course!
Where else is it that you will see woven literary magic come to life than in the movie that will make you question what is truly real and what is not?
Eddie Redmayne, moulds himself into the cast of every character he plays, he played the most convincing Dr. Stephen Hawking in his movie ‘The Theory Of Everything’ and now he enchants and mystifies with his role of Mr. Newt Scamander in ‘Fanatastic Beasts and Where To Find Them’.
Somehow, Mr. Scamander, a man who is in love with misunderstood and ginormous beasts, has a caring and calm personality no matter what trouble ( or creature) is thrown at him. His love and passion is what drives him to protect them from even the evil of Gellert Grindelwald, played by one-who-shall-not-be-known-till-the-end.
J.K. Rowling has obliterated all boundaries of imagination and given us silver eggs and snakes that have wings, to a metamorphosis of a Rhino and an elephant to dream of.
This truly wild journey, will drive your imagination wild, entirely.
Later, there are even very ‘Lestrange’ encounters and a love story between Newt and Tina Goldstein (played by the beautiful Kate Waterstone) blossoms, along with that, a ‘No- Maj’ and a witch , who could read his mind before it was even made up, develop a quirky relationship.
The story takes you through ups and downs and twists and plots and characters whom you may have never expected to encounter in the movie, let’s just say you won’t just be at the edge of your seat, your mind will ‘wand’er to a world beyond ours, movies require one to willingly suspend disbelief and if you do, this Fantastic movie is probably the Be(a)st, and will surely leave you stupendously stupefied.
