Belle wasn’t that swell. Gugu Mbatha-Raw did a great job as the titular but the rest of the movie didn’t get the memo she did. This movie had a lot of dry boring moments. I did like how Belle being black seemed to have more freedom than her white sister/cousin due to being an heiress. The costumes were well made and some of the settings were gorgeous. Tom Felton was just as evil as he was in Harry Potter (some things never change). Sarah Gadon needs to be in every film as her beauty is nearly unmatched. The movie is fine, it just wasn’t nearly as inspiring as the trailer makes you think it is.
