Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

(PG-13) ★★★★☆

Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) is still hunting Horcruxes, which contain amounts of Voldemort’s (Ralph Fiennes) soul. The so-called Elder Wand, stolen from the crypt of Harry’s mentor Dumbledore (Michael Gambon), must be put into the right hands. Snape (Alan Rickman) has taken over Hogwarts, transforming it into an awful place. Smart yet not slavish direction, and the still-perfect casting from way back when, make this final chapter an entertaining and satisfying success.

It’s a long way from Nebraska to the Las Vegas Strip, but Samantha Ware made the trek in near record time. It took the 19-year-old less than a year to go from being a sophomore at Doane College—a private liberal arts university near Lincoln—to starring as Nala in The Lion King at Mandalay Bay beginning last month. “It’s been a very surreal experience, I think I kind of blacked out on opening night because there was so much going on,” says Ware, who became the youngest adult member of the cast when she debuted on June 13.
