Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - Film discussion

Professor Dumbledore realises that the key to defeating evil Lord Voldemort lies in unlocking the memories of the new Hogwarts’ potions master, Horace Slughorn, and Harry is given the task of uncovering these.

While the setting of Harry Potter’s world is fantastical, Harry is, in essence, an ordinary teenager trying to make sense of the world. This film sees him dealing with many of the issues every young person faces; such as romantic feelings, loyalty, and relationships with authority.

Themes: Who do you listen to?; promise making; anger and murderous thoughts; real love; obedience and authority.
