Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story is a made-for-TV film starring actress Poppy Montgomery. It is based on the book J.K. Rowling A Biography, by Sean Smith, detailing the journey of struggling single mother J. K. Rowling, her bid to become a published author, and her rise to fame that followed the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
The production was criticized for being too lacklustre, possibly because Rowling had no say in the product. It does shed some light on her personal life and featured scenes such as her highly abusive first husband and the death of her mother.
Poppy Montgomery reportedly wore blue contact lenses to play the role of the highly influential author.
The movie won Canadian Screen Awards 2013 in category for Best Dramatic Mini-Series or TV Movie. Poppy Montgomery was also nominated in category for Lead actress in television film or miniseries but she lost to Emily Osment.
