Beauty and the Beast

An adaptation of the Disney fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love.

Quote: "This Beauty’s got such great bone structure, she’s pretty great even with a new blemish or two.

Bill Condon, who nailed the film adaptation of Chicago by keeping it simple, takes the lush route this time around. Audiences will gasp, as they are intended to, at the beautiful scenery, the pretty costumes, the cleverly effective effects. The sets are ornate in the fullest sense of the word: each speck of screen is filled with something beautiful, even if it is a blade of grass or crumbling infrastructure. The objects we’ve come to love over these 25 (!) years look dandy, the scary wolves do, too, which, be forewarned, might freak out a viewer or two."
