An earlier film by Broad Strokes, this one also about Harry Potter. Or well the world before Harry Potter.This time being about Dumbledore and his fight with his good friend Grindelwald.
It starts off with them both crashing onto a beach, the wind knocked out of them both, along with Dumbledore's brother and sister, who are annoyed with them both. They very quickly take off, causing a rift between the two friends. We see how Dumbledore starts to change his views on their place in the world. Slowly becoming the man that we all know and love.
They play on the hinted at relationship between Grindelwald and Dumbledore to nice affect. The two men are at a standoff until Grindelwald attacks Dumbledore's brother and Dumbledore himself takes action. The two men are almost evenly matched.
The two brothers do a combo attack but Grindelwald takes off coming back to attack the younger brother and making it a fair fight once more. Dumbledore over powers him, giving his brother a chance to kill him but Dumbledore steps in the way, saving their foe.
The two men do the killing curse on each other but Dumbledore's sister stops them and is hit with both curses. The two men part ways. A sad tale of a friendship, a partnership crashing down to a horrible bitter ending.
This production company, Broad Strokes, is an amazing company. The do such great work and tell such great stories. Pulling at the heart strings far more than they have any right too. I love them. Far too much!
