Romantic Gem With An Uplifting Telling!
23 January 2008 | by (Salt Lake City) – See all my reviews

Didn't expect much -- avoided seeing it in its very brief theatrical run -- then heard some good things about it when my brother watched it on DVD. Turns out that BEAUTY & THE BEAST: A LATTER-DAY TALE is a delightful film that is both romantic, touching and thought-provoking. The leads have a chemistry that works and the telling of the familiar story has enough twists and originality to make it compelling. Technically there are a few weaknesses (some shots are on the soft side), but the direction, script and music all blend well together to provide a very enjoyable film. I'm glad that I didn't overlook this one -- for it's a "Gem"!
