Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast

Directed by Christophe Gans • 2014 • France, Germany
Starring Vincent Cassel, Léa Seydoux, André Dussollier

Two of contemporary French cinema’s most magnetic stars—Vincent Cassel and Léa Seydoux—light up this visually sumptuous adaptation of the beloved fairy tale. Once upon a time, a struggling merchant stumbles upon the magical domain of the fearsome Beast (Cassel), who sentences him to death for stealing a rose. The merchant’s youngest daughter, Belle (Seydoux), bravely sacrifices herself and takes her father’s place. It is not death that awaits Belle at the Beast’s castle, though, but a strange and fantastical life unlike anything she has ever experienced—and the discovery that her mysterious host is living under a terrible enchantment. As Belle valiantly attempts to release the Beast from his curse, the two discover that a most unlikely bond blooms between them.
