Movie Review- Beauty and the Beast

By Ashleigh

 

Beauty and the Beast is a fairytale about looking at people’s inner self and personality rather than judging someone by their outward appearance. Beauty and the Beast has been a long- loved classic. As the classic goes, a prince ( played by Dan Stevens),was asked for help by an elderly woman, and he turned her down because of her appearance. He didn’t know that the woman was actually an enchantress. Because of his judgement, the enchantress cast a curse to turn him into a beast. The only way to break the curse was for a girl to love him for  his personality. Belle (played by Emma Watson) is taken as a prisoner in the Beast’s castle. While she is in the castle, she befriends the enchanted castle staff. Belle learns to look beyond the Beast’s awful appearance and finds a kind and gentle prince who  is trapped inside. Beauty and the Beast is a fairytale about looking at people’s inner personalities. Once again, Disney makes the beloved old new with live action and fantastic special effects.
