Whether the recent film or the 2004 French movie version or the 1991 Disney cartoon, I have always loved Beauty and The Beast. There is something about Belle and Beast’s story that is appealing. Maybe it was because Belle saw through Beast’s physical appearance or something about Belle’s charm that melted the facade of Beast and showed her who he really is. It’s enchanting. It’s romantic. It’s magical. Over and over again, through the years, it has touched my heart. Actually, the recent movie left me in tears – reason still unknown – and some learnings I’d love to share with you.
