I never got to see this at the movies, but finally got the chance now. I found it a really well-made adaption. Emma Watson has turned into an amazingly beautiful and talented actress and carried a lot of the movie, but the chemistry between Belle and Beast worked really well too. And for once the Beast looked better as a man than as a beast! :-P I don't regret not having paid to see it at the movies, but I am glad I got to see it now.
Tale as old as the 90s
I was wary about sitting through 2 hours of a live-action version of the original Disney film, but I came away just pretty dang delighted. This was just so beautiful and well-made, and Emma Watson was perfect for the role. The whole thing was just surprisingly good.
Belle (Emma Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman, is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) in its castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the beast's hideous exterior, allowing her to recognize the kind heart and soul of the true prince that hides on the inside.
