Breaking the curse
Belle is one of the two central characters of the Disney film Beauty and the Beast and is inspired more by the Disney version than the original 18th century story. It tells the story of a young woman who goes to the castle of a prince who was cursed and condemned to look like a horrible beast, to free her father who was taken prisoner there. Belle, an intelligent young woman with a passion for reading, offers to become a servant at the castle in exchange for her father’s freedom. As the days go by, Belle and the Beast grow closer, thanks in part to their love of reading, and the castle’s inhabitants, themselves transformed into objects, perhaps see an opportunity to break the spell.
