The "beauty" is talented painter Alix Miller. Her father, Alexander, is scheduled to go to the isolated Crompton mansion in New Hampshire to paint a family portrait of the mysterious, reclusive author Lee Crompton, but he falls ill and cannot. Alix decides to take his place. Much to her shock, Lee is horribly disfigured from a disease called acromegaly. Still, she has an obligation and so goes on with the painting. But as time goes on, they finds themselves increasingly drawn romantically to each other, despite the enigmatic Lee's own fears.

The movie is great
9 May 2006 | by jerseygirl-5See all my reviews

I just caught the last hour of the movie "Beauty" with Janine Turner and Hal Holbrook plus other actors it was made in 1998 for TV and its been on Lifetime Movie Network over and over again and I just fell in love with it again. I looked to see if it was going to be on again and it will be tomorrow afternoon May 10, 2006 at 2:35 et on Lifetime Movie Network. I am going to attempt taping it but I don't know if it's going to work. I had seen the movie a few years ago on TV and started searching for the movie after that time but had no luck finding it then. It reminded me of a modern day Beauty and the Beast movie. If anybody knows how to get a copy of the movie either on VHS or DVD I would love to get a copy. Thank you.
