Beauty and the Beast


When her father (Kevin Kline) is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) inside a huge, wintry castle, Belle (Emma Watson) offers herself in exchange for his freedom. Another live-action remake of an animated Disney classic, looking more like a Broadway show than anything else. This one is beautiful and fun and has playful buoyancy and colorful opulence. Watson is radiant in the lead, the film has a few new songs and the 3D visuals really draw us into this fairytale world. But it canā€™t escape a certain sense of pointlessness considering how close it stays to the 1991 original.Ā
