Lush Life

I know that everyone is raving about the new Beauty and The Beast movie that is currently in theaters, but if you are a fan of the movie, do yourself a favor and watch Jean Cocteau’s 1946 French film La Belle et la Bête. From the ‘hands’ that hold the candles in the Beast’s castle, to the sumptuous over-the-top costumes, to the eerily beautiful special effects that give the movie a distinct magical realism feel – this classic movie is a must-see criterion experience for all ages.

My husband got the movie for me as a Valentine’s Day gift several years ago and we re-watched it last night as we celebrated our 12th year wedding anniversary. If you have someone special in your life, this is the perfect movie for a romantic evening together.
