Synopsis

Set in modern-day New York, this re-telling of Beauty and the Beast keeps the original's theme of looking past surface appearances to inner beauty, but turns the story into an edgy teen romance. Kyle Kingson is rich, intelligent and good-looking - and gets a kick out of humiliating "aggressively unattractive" classmates. But when he invites Goth classmate Kendra to a school bash only to cruelly reject her, he gets a perfectly apt come-uppance. This might not be the most accomplished teen drama, but its premise will definitely get you thinking...

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
