This is one of the most inspiring movies I've seen in a very long time. I've been a Harry Potter fan since elementary school, when they first came out. I have all the books and movies. To see the story of JK Rowling though... It made me love and appreciate them even more. This movie has inspired me to write. I've always had stories I wanted to tell but was too afraid to write. I'm no longer afraid. I watch this movie every couple of weeks, usually when I'm feeling like I no longer want to write. I love it!

Very inspirational! Just goes to show that once again, passionate persistence can pay off well! She's just a "normal" person :)

Surprisingly well made & casted. I thought it would be more of a cheesy, fake- documentary-type that just piggy-backed on the JK Rowling name to turn a quick profit. I was delighted when I found that wasn't the case at all! The movie is more of an actual "movie", and not so much a "documentary" that just uses the same few photos & tells the viewer a bunch of stuff they already know. The movie turned out to be a slightly magical tale about a broken woman who writes a story. It was really fast- paced & just sort of touched on important moments pertaining to the creation of the Harry Potter world. I loved the way the book started coming to life around her as she wrote. This was an awesome movie- so much better than anticipated.

This is the best Biography movie that I ever watched in my entire life besides Gifted Hands The Ben Carson Story that stars Cuba Gooding Jr who plays Ben Carson which is one of the main characters . J.K. Rowling went through a lot in her entire life as a author. Here are a few for example, her mother's death on New Year's Eve, Divorce with her first husband because of fighting and yelling reasons mostly with a little shoving and hitting. Writing the first Harry Potter Book and being ejected more than once I believe they didn't mention it in the movie. Best movie to watch with or without your kids...

I have enjoyed the video about J. K. Rowling very much. It is so amazing for her to go from a single mom on welfare to a billionaire because of her wonderful writing. Unfortunately, I sent this video back because it does not have any captions and I am hard of hearing. It said that it had captions, but I have found that there are no copies of this video that have any captioning. I have watched it on other sources, very loud, when I am alone, but had hoped to get one with captions. I would love to hear from anyone who has found one with captioning.

This film was so uplifting. I always wanted to know the story behind the creation of the Harry Potter books; now I do and its just as sweet as I expected. Poppy Montgomery was the perfect choice to play J. K. Rowling. Wow!!! What a performance. I have such respect for J. K. Rowling and how she faced so many challenges with grace. Great movie! I think I'll go watch it again.

This is the story of JK Rowling author of the Harry Potter books. This little movie may not win any awards for filming, but her story is amazing and this movie tells it so perfectly. Poppy Montgomery does a wonderful and believable job portraying her. I first saw this on Netflix and watched it several times. When they took it off I decided that I wanted to own it to watch again and again just like I do the Harry Potter movies.

As both a life story and the tale of a legend of literary success, Magic Beyond Words is an excellent portrayal of a complex woman. The movie traces the early life and later development of JK Rowling -- and as nearly as I could check in other sources, with both dramatic flair and accuracy. Poppy Montgomery is brilliant as JK Rowling in adult life. She is well supported by a competent cast.

I am a mad HP fan and have seen this film several times on TV. I really wanted this on DVD but our player wont play region 1 discs which is all that the Canadian version plays on. Then I noticed this one which is made for the European market. Ok so its title is in German BUT you can choose to play the disc in English so problem solved. The film itself is an interpretation of JK Rowlings rise to fame. Its well acted and Poppy Montgomery does a great job playing the lead role....she certainly has the look about her and her interpretation of JK Rowling is as we would have imagined her to be. Whether JK Rowling would agree is another matter as she is such a private person Im not sure how she would feel about this film. The film does contain some scenes of domestic violence so if you want your kids to watch it maybe have a look first to check out if you are happy for them to view this. The film is about 80 mins long and I really enjoyed it. Happy that I can now watch it whenever I want. A real must for anyone who is a potter head.

I love this film. It follows the life story of J K Rowling and gives us a birds eye view of her life from the age of about 5 onwards. I enjoyed learning about how she came up with ideas for her books and thought her story to be an inspiring one. I'm not a huge Harry Potter fan, although I did enjoy watching the movies when they came out, and I think people who don't necessarily like the films might like this regardless. The film does focus on her writing the Harry Potter books but is a great stand alone film in it's own right.

This is a rags to riches story and we see all the ups and downs in J K Rowling's life up until the time of publication. It's not just about writing, it's also about surviving and over coming adversity.

Absolutely love this film. If like myself you are a massive harry potter fan and you haven't seen this or indeed have and loved it then please buy this, it's an amazing film that I've watched a few times and could watch it over and over again.
