Potter in a Social Context Certain aspects of the plot in the Harry Potter series often seem to parallel real word problems. For instance, the widespread attacks on Muggles and Muggle-borns that take place in Deathly Hallows are not unlike the treatment of Jews in Europe during the Holocaust. To what extent does Jo use Harry Potter as social commentary, addressing such issues as discrimination, religion, the media, and government?
Give us your review of Deathly Hallows Deathly Hallows Part 2 just came out in theatres. In your opinion, was it true to the book? Did Alexandre Desplat's music capture the moods and feelings Jo conveyed in her narrative? Can a movie really ever be made to approach the greatness of the text, or is it a separate kind of art form, entirely?
