Mormon Movie Review: ***Beauty and the Beast: A Latter-day Tale
Also known as "Belle and the Beast: A Christian Romance." This movie took a long time to get going. The acting at the first seemed terribly canned and stereotyped. The beast, Eric (Matthew Reese) is too mean and rude, while Belle (Summer Naomi Smart) is just too forgiving. They were too much trying to fit into their particular roles, which made for an unbelievable movie. However, I must admit that before the end of the movie, I was concerned about the characters and what happened to them. It had a feel good ending that was pleasing.
