Calling all muggles! ‘A Year in the Life of J.K. Rowling’ provides unprecedented access to a full year in the life of the imaginative author: the year in which Rowling completed the literary phenomenon that is Harry Potter. A usually camera-shy Rowling reveals her life and what is behind her creative drive, resulting in an intimate portrait of this very private author.
As Rowling works away on the conclusion of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’, the camera follows the author every step of the way, gaining insight into Rowling’s thought process while she decides how she will resolve the novel and comes to terms with the end of her 10-year involvement with the characters.
The film also takes viewers back to Rowling’s childhood home and to the flat where she completed the first book of the Harry Potter series. The film ends with her starting work on a new book and contemplating life after Harry.
