Romantic fantasy musical directed by Bill Condon, this is a live-action adaptation of the 1991 Disney animation. In this tale we follow Belle (Emma Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the beast’s hideous exterior and animal like anger, realizing the kind heart and soul of the prince within.
