The story goes like this: Set in Bourbon-era France, a young woman, Belle, is imprisoned in an enchanted castle by the fearsome Beast, a prince cursed by a sorceress as penance for his callousness. She is also pursued by Gaston, a narcissistic hunter who wants her hand in marriage, leading to a confrontation with the Beast.

Beauty and the Beast is of fantasy, romance, family and musical genre, which runs for approximately 129 minutes. It's Rated PG in most countries for some action violence, peril, and frightening images. If you ask me, it's arguably the best film of 2017 so far. Entertaining, enchanting, and engrossing - this is how I would describe the film. It is very nostalgic, about 95% faithful to the plot of the original animated film. It's pure perfection, from its cast to its soundtrack, you should go see it!

RATING: 5 out of 5 STARS

Til then...
