Have you ever seen this movie?
Then you basically know this story and I don’t need to paraphrase it for you.
I.. was kind of bored. And the whole Stockholm Syndrome thing everyone always talks about with Beauty and the Beast really stood out to me for some reason. She didn’t fit in with her family anymore, so she went back to her capture… which, yah basically happens in the movie too so I am not sure why it stands out to me now.
Like Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney Princess Movie. I have done photoshoots based off of Beauty and the Beast. I relate to her being a strong woman who loves books and isn’t afraid to bite back. And Yeva did have the bite and she did have the strength and she did have passion (it wasn’t books, but that’s fine). But for some reason her capture and hostage situation really stood out to me. Did anyone else feel that way?
Anyway, back to the story itself, I wasn’t really feeling it. I felt like it was missing something, but I loved the Yeva as a character and the connection with her family and the people surrounding her family was incredibly written. I was more interested in the could-have-been dramatic triangle that formed with her family and her sister’s handicap and how they lost all their money and everything. I wish that was touched on more; but then again, that isn’t apart of the original, is it?
