Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix
Nine, 8.30pm, PG ( 2007)
Storm clouds gather over the world’s most famous boy wizard in the fifth film to be adapted from J. K. Rowling’s literary saga. Not only must grieving Harry ( Daniel Radcliff e, above) deal with the usual teenage angst, a growing sense of isolation and an epic showdown with his evil nemesis Lord Voldemort ( Ralph Fiennes), but – perhaps just as scary – he faces his first kiss. It’s lucky trusty sidekicks Ron ( Rupert Grint) and Hermione ( Emma Watson) are around for moral support. New director David Yates does a respectable job of keeping Rowling’s increasingly darker tale on course, while Imelda Staunton is exquisitely dislikable as Dumbledore’s usurper at Hogwarts.
