Beauty and the Beast is an American musical romantic dark fantasy film directed by Bill Condon.
Belle ‘Emma Watson’ is taken captive by the Beast ‘Dan Stevens’, but her father offers to take her place in exchange for her release from the castle.
Once human, the Beast was cursed and turned into a beast because of his arrogance. For the curse to be broken, he must find true love from a woman who will not mind his ugliness.
There is also a threat to deal with Gaston ‘Luke Evans’ who seeks to marry Belle and kill the Beast by any means.
The film stars Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Concussion, Free State of Jones), Emma Thompson (Men in Black 3) and Ewan McGregor (Mortdecai, Angels & Demons).
It is showing today in cinemas around town.
