I can’t believe nobody’s given a shout out to Père Robert yet. I know it was an incredibly minor role but he was one of my favourite characters. He let Belle borrow his small collection of books because he knew the village didn’t approve of her reading and it was the only way she could access books. During the ‘Mob Song’ scene, he was basically the only person who didn’t flinch with fear when Belle revealed the Beast in the mirror. He very clearly wanted to stop the mob but couldn’t because, well it’s a mob, what can ya do?
Good on yer, Père Robert!
