    Charming adaptation of terrific book

    Jeremy Irons and his son Sam star as father and son plotting harmless revenge on obnoxious local bigwig (played by pre-Hagrid Robbie Coltrane). Satisfying to see the baddy outwitted; lovely relationship between dad and son; and elder Irons always a hottie.
