Beauty and the Beast by Jean Cocteau

Beauty and the Beast/La Belle et la Bête

by Jean Cocteau
France - 1946 - 86 min
June 13, 2017 | 7:00 p.m

As part of its Summer film series "Once Upon a Time: From Books to Movies," the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the screening of the 1946 film Beauty and the Beast by Jean Cocteau.

The only gift the daughter of a rich merchant asks from her father, when he returns from a long journey, is a red rose. Her sisters laugh at her, but once this unexpected wish is granted, everything becomes enchanting. A man is changed into a beast, the house has spells cast upon it, and, in the end, Prince Charming appears to delight Beauty.

Online registration is required for this free admission screening.

This screening by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States is made possible through the generous support from TV5 Monde and the French-American Cultural Foundation.
