Storyline

Beauty is the backbone of her family. Without her nothing is ever done and no one is ever on time. But when her father angers a beast living in an enchanted castle, Beauty takes his punishment. She leaves her family and lives in the castle where, for the first time in her life, she starts to think about what she really wants. With her host only appearing at supper time, Beauty finds her own ways to amuse herself, but at night she dreams of a lost prince who constantly asks for her help. Through her choices Beauty learns what is important and what wishing can accomplish. Written by Max Vaughn

Quotes

Beauty: May I serve you something to eat, Beast? I would be so much more comfortable eating, if you would join me.
Beast/Prince: No, no... You would be far less comfortable dining with me, my lady. As you have noticed, I am an animal and I must take my food as one. I hunt for my supper and I do not play with such dainty toys as knives and spoons.

My favorite!
6 January 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I have always loved Farie Tales, and this is my all time favorite, and I have them all. "The Frog Prince" with Aileen Quinn and Helen Hunt. "Puss N' Boots" with Christopher Walken. "Hansel and Gretel", "Rumplestiltskin", "Snow White", "Sleeping Beauty", "Pinnochio". A couple of those are done by Farie Tale Theatre, but I love the Cannon tales more than anything on earth. With Rebecca de Mornay singing, I never would have imagined she could btw, it's astounding. The cinametogrophy is great, and the script is wonderful. I'm 19, and even my father willingly watches this with me. He says, and I agree, that it just seems so real... and he's not that kind of guy at all!!! John Savage is the most terrific beast I could imagine... other than in the French movie "Beaute et Le Bete" or whatever it's called *lol*. It's an even better version than the Disney Cartoon, which is also one of my favorites. I hope that whoever sees this film on sale buys it (and sends it to me, I need a not worn out one!!!) and cherishes it forever!
