Movie Diary 3/2/2017

Beauty and the Beast (Bill Condon, 2017). The Disney cartoon musical gets a re-do with live people. Some of the live people are Emma Watson, Kevin Kline, and Josh Gad, so that’s good. There’s a whole lotta digital world-making going on, too. (full review 3/17)

My Life As a Zucchini (Claude Barras, 2016). One of the animated Oscar nominees, a sweet-natured little stop-motion parable about orphans with giant heads. (full review 3/10)
