Beauty and the Beast (2017) is the live action adaptation of the beloved 1991 animated movie of the same name. In the live-action movie, Belle( played by Emma Watson) is a woman whose love of books makes her less than popular with people of her village. Belle lives with her father Maurice(Kevin Kline) and helps her around the shop. When he turns up missing, she searches for him all alone. To save him from imprisonment from the Beast(Dan Stevens), she offers to take her father’s place. Meanwhile, Gaston (Luke Evans), whose love for Belle is more for vanity purposes, leads the hunt for her return. The movie, just like the original, deals with inner and outer beauty. Overall, except for running time (a few extra scenes here and there), this movie is just like the original. The only thing I recommend is not to watch the original and the new movie back to back. You’ll feel like you watched the same movie twice.
