Storyline

The "beauty" is talented painter Alix Miller. Her father, Alexander, is scheduled to go to the isolated Crompton mansion in New Hampshire to paint a family portrait of the mysterious, reclusive author Lee Crompton, but he falls ill and cannot. Alix decides to take his place. Much to her shock, Lee is horribly disfigured from a disease called acromegaly. Still, she has an obligation and so goes on with the painting. But as time goes on, they finds themselves increasingly drawn romantically to each other, despite the enigmatic Lee's own fears.

A Good Take on a Beloved Story
7 October 2006 | by Redstar5288See all my reviews

This movie isn't perfect, I mean it's a Lifetime movie so it has its sappy moments. I am so glad I stumbled upon this movie when flipping mindlessly through the channels. This is modern adaptation of Beauty and the Beast based on the book, Beauty by Susan Wilson where Beauty is an artist and Beast is a lonely writer. The on screen chemistry between Janine Turner and Jamey Sheridan is what makes this movie wonderful and worth seeing. So many moments of this were heartwarming and overall this movie emphasizes admirable themes of a classic fairytale. If you like romantic movies, this is a good choice---only down-side---it's not available on DVD so you need to check ahead on Lifetime to see when it's on. It's worth the wait.
