      roger g It's a Lifetime movie of Beauty and the Beast. Predictable with several attempts to tug at your emotions. Love, death, and holding hands. The story tries to actualize that a well-painted portrait can capture the true essence of a person. However, the story also leads us in another direction. Can an artist capture the outward appearance of a man, put it on a canvas, and change the way that person actually sees himself? This made for TV story attempts to show that yes, it can, and no it doesn't. Of course, we have a hand-holding happy ending. Not-so-famous actors doing a credible job with the delivery of this subject. The hour and a half will go by quickly. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
