With Harry's fifth return to Hogwarts comes the realisation that Voldemort's return to power is not the only factor that will trouble him and he is forced to confront a different force that matches his growing pains.

Sadly exposition over action is this film's real undoing.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
