: 7+ Synopsis
: First "Potter" movie is a magical ride but also intense. What Parents Should Know
: Parents need to know that this first movie in the Harry Potter series has some intense and scary moments. Harry Potter and friends — who are only 11 years old here — are in peril and get hurt, but not seriously, and most of the scares come from fantasy creatures. There's a flashback to the (bloodless) death of Harry's parents and discussion about how they died and the one who killed them. —Common Sense Media
