My favorite movie is about a townsperson who loves to read. Her dad is the town crazy inventor. She has this man who will do anything to get this woman to marry him, even though he has his pick of women who want to be his wife. All this girl really wants is adventure in the great wide somewhere. Her dad sets off to a fair to show his latest invention. On the way there, he gets lost and takes refuge in a castle. What he doesn't know is this castle is enchanted. Inside lives a beast that must fall in love before his 21st birthday. When the father's horse returns to the cottage, the daughter sets out to find her dad. She too comes across the enchanted castle. When confronted with the beast, she offers to stay there as his prisoner if he lets the dad go. The beast obliges.
The ridiculously good looking man devises a plan to get the girl to marry him, by having her dad committed. The girl is starting to get settled in the castle. She is befriended by a candlestick, a clock, a teapot, and her son a cup. She teaches the beast to be more gentle and less temperamental. When she finds out that her father is ill, she goes back to town to help him. When the townspeople call them crazy, she brings out an enchanted mirror and shows that the beast is real. Then the ridiculously good looking man feels he must kill the beast. There is a fight and the beautiful girl thinks that the beast is dying. She tells the beast that she loves him just as the last petal falls from an enchanted rose. I will not spoil the ending.
If you haven't guessed yet, my favorite movie (and has been since I was 13) is Beauty and the Beast. Yes, I love other movies, but this movie is my go-to comfort movie. It is also my favorite musical as well. My favorite series of movies are the Fast and the Furious.
Photo Day 24: Negative Space - Last night's super moon. It was beautiful, though it didn't seem any larger than it does on any other night.
