Beauty and the Beast Rated PG

Beauty and the Beast

Dir. Bill Condon. USA, 2017. 2h 9m. Starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Emma Thompson, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen.

Enchanting live action re-telling of Disney’s classic animation. Lavish visuals and a mix of brilliant new songs and old favourites makes for a magical experience that both dazzles the eyes and plucks at the heartstrings.

‘This movie pays tribute to the much-loved 1991 animation, but adds more zing and subtlety to every encounter’ ★★★★★ Kate Muir, The Times

Three cheers for director Bill Condon and star Emma Watson for having the courage to make a live-action adaptation with 2017 gender politics.’ ★★★★ Cath Clarke, Time Out
