As Harry Potter and his friends grow up, the popular series of stories about them becomes darker, more mature, and more complex along with them. In this sixth installment, Harry comes to see the more vulnerable sides of both his wise headmaster Dumbledore as well as his longtime nemesis Draco Malfoy, as the Dark Lord Voldemort sets in motion a plan that will enable him to conquer the wizarding world. Oh, and meanwhile, Harry and his friends begin to fall in love with their schoolmates.

This guide will help you discuss some of the questions raised by this film. What is the nature of love, and how does it differ from infatuation? What does it mean to make a promise? And how should we regard the soul, its immortality, and death?
