Rowling, who overcame numerous hardships to rise seemingly overnight from a destitute welfare mother in England to one of the richest and most admired women in the world.

I am sure that JK Rowling has a wonderful story, and this movie has tried to present it in an 'unauthorized' way, however it missed the mark with me.
Poppy Montgomery was wonderful in her role.

Any Potter fan or aspiring young writer, (such as my son), will glean inspiration from Rowling's journey and gain a satisfied curiosity around the intricate story line surrounding the origin of the story. For those kids that have read and re-read the novels this DVD is a worthwhile adjunct.

Many of the facts may be fabricated, but the story is inspiring.

Well acted, but the story didn't seem up to snuff for me. I felt that there was a lot of artistic liscence taken in making it, but that might just be me.
