Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them | reviewed by: William O'Donnell | March 29, 2017
Awful trailers aside, this is both a charming fantasy and well crafted period film. I prefer this whimsy over other blockbuster fantasies.
|synopsis||In 1926, Newt Scamander arrives at the Magical Congress of the United States of America with a magically expanded briefcase, which houses a number of dangerous creatures and their habitats. When the creatures escape from the briefcase, it sends the American wizarding authorities after Newt, and threatens to strain even further the state of magical and non-magical relations.|
