Our rating:

In this epic musical live action Disney take on the legendary Beauty and the Beast story Emma Watson stars as Belle who sees the real heart in the cursed prince who has become the Beast.

Full of great performances and special effects leavened with a nice dose of humour. Even the songs don't wear out their welcome. It's rare to find a musical that doesn't falter in it's pacing. Emma Watson is of course a stand out as Belle but Luke Evans provides plenty of humour as Gaston who loves himself as much as he loves Belle.
