Synopsis

Suzu is a socially awkward high-school student who lives with her father after her mother tragically drowned in an accident some years earlier. She finds solace in an incredibly popular new app called ‘U’ which allows users to transport themselves into a colourful virtual world as an avatar which is automatically generated based on the person’s appearance and characteristics. However Suzu inadvertently uses a photo of her friend when uploading which, combined with her username, gives her anonymity. With this protection in place, she finds the confidence to resume singing which quickly results in her becoming a worldwide sensation. Dubbed ‘Belle’ – meaning ‘beauty’ – by her fans, she soon discovers the many sides of social media. But when she learns about a destructive character within the app known as the Dragon, Belle’s instinct tells her to help him. Loosely based on the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ fairy tale, this modern interpretation has dazzling visuals and a beautiful soundtrack while also containing serious themes around identity, social media, and trauma.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
