Town Hall and Tribeca are proud to present a special screening of Jean Cocteau’s cinematic classic La Belle et la Bête, featuring a live score by Philip Glass, whose celebrated interpretation will be performed by the Philip Glass Ensemble for one night only on Thursday, April 20th, 2017. Plus, don’t miss a pre-screening conversation with the master himself.
I went to see Beauty and the Beast and I enjoyed it a lot. I especially enjoyed this version of the Beast like 100x more than I was expecting. He has a very handsome face and voice and personality, which didn’t really come through in the 1 trailer I watched.
I was charmed that the person who wrote the movie seemed to really know their shit about different versions of the story - there were several nice references/homages to Robin McKinley’s versions, in addition to the refs to the Alan Menken/Disney animated movie. I feel like there was a certain feeling like Howl’s Moving Castle as well at one point - I think it might have been the teleporting magic.
I might go see it again and write a big post about it more detailed.
