Beastly is a modern-day version of the epic love story involving a beauty and a beast. I understand there are many flaws with this story, including how unrealistic it really it is. Our heroine is not actually held captive, yet goes along with the situation because she hopes for a brighter future. The main hero is pretty much as horrible as someone can be, yet deep down has a huge heart and could be a great guy. The thing I admire the most is his pursuit of his dream girl, learning the hard way that money isn’t the only way into someone’s heart and that it can’t solve all your problems.
