Beastly Synopsis

Beastly is an edgy teen romance about learning how to see past false surfaces to discover true inner beauty.

Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has it all – looks, intelligence, wealth and opportunity – and a wicked cruel streak. Prone to mocking and humiliating aggressively unattractive classmates, he zeroes in on Goth classmate Kendra, inviting her to the school’s extravagant environmental bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly savage fashion. She retaliates by casting a spell that physically transforms him into everything he despises. Enraged by his horrible and unrecognizable appearance he confronts Kendra and learns that the only solution to the curse is to find someone that will love him as he is – a task he considers impossible.

Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle’s callous father banishes him to Brooklyn with a sympathetic housekeeper (LisaGay Hamilton) and blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). As Kyle ponders how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for his daughter Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) if she will consent to live in Kyle’s Brooklyn home. Thus begins Kyle’s journey to discover true love in this hyper-modern retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast story.

Weekend Box Office: Rango Rocks, The 80s Don't Weekend Box Office: Rango Rocks, The 80s Don't
This weekend was a good one for cartoon chameleons, not so much for fans of the 80s. Computer animated Rango banked $38 million for an easy number one. While that's only a start against its $135 million budget, it's a far better turn out than that 80s movie enjoyed. Topher Grace's Take Me Home Tonight only managed to pull in $3.5 million officially giving it the lowest opening for a wide release film for the year so far. The debut was so weak, it didn't even make the top ten, opening at eleventh place just behind month-old Justin Bieber: Never Say Never....

Interview: Beastly's Alex Pettyfer And Vanessa Hudgens Interview: Beastly's Alex Pettyfer And Vanessa Hudgens
There’s a reason why Beauty and the Beast is such a timeless story. It’s message about inner-beauty and looking beyond vanity is something that can and will always be applicable to our society. Any where on Earth is that story better suited than in a high school? Daniel Barnz’s Beastly takes the traditional story and moves it to modern day New York where a vain, pompous rich kid, played by Alex Pettyfer, is turned into a ghastly looking figure....
