Audience Reviews for Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story

I don't know enough about JK Rowling to know how much of this movie is true, but considering it's not trying to hide the fact that it's unauthorized, I really didn't care about that. I enjoyed the performances and found it to be a much better film than the reviews it's gotten. You shouldn't always expect the worst of something just because it comes from Lifetime.
