I’d say almost everyone knows the plot outline to Beauty and the Beast, a father imprisoned by a beast, a daughter who takes her father’s place, and the love that develops and turns the beast into a man. I didn’t need to spoiler hide that, right?
It has, however, been years since I’ve read any of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tales, I remember them vaguely from childhood, but I’d never seen the Disney version before now, although I had heard it highly praised.

I always meant to see Spirited Away, but never got around to it, so I’m glad I got a chance to see this film, by the same director, in the cinema. Based on the book of the same title by Dianna Wynne Jones, Howl’s Moving Castle is an anime cartoon telling the story of Sophie, a young hatmaker who is cursed by the Witch of the Waste and turned into a ninty year old woman. The only way for her to break the curse is to help Howl and his fire demon Calcifer break the curse that they are suffering under. Read more about Howl’s Moving Castle …
