The actress thinks the franchise 'romanticises' boarding school

Tilda Swinton has slammed the Harry Potter films and believes they romanticise boarding school.

The actress, who attended boarding school West Heath in London during her younger years, thinks such settings are a cruel place for children to grow up in.

“I think [boarding schools] are a very cruel setting in which to grow up and I don’t feel children benefit from that type of education,” Tilda told The Scots Magazine.
