Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this reworking of the Beauty and the Beast story has a religious backdrop. Eric, known as the "Beast" by the locals, lost his wife and his business a few years back and fell into alcoholism, which is not shown. Having quit drinking, he remains angry and mean to all those who work for him. Although he was once a churchgoer, he has not returned, believing God has abandoned him. When Belle must work as his assistant to help her father keep his job, she maintains her dignity and cheerfulness despite Eric's mistreatment, eventually knocking down his nasty defenses.
