I laughed, I cried, I smiled.
The Boy and the Beast surpassed every single one of my expectations, I adored this film. This is an emotional roller-coaster of a film, I cared, but not only that I cried, three times. The characters and their relationships felt so genuine that when they were in their worst moments, I felt legitimately bad for them and when they were in their best I smiled. This movie explores topics such as friendship, family, not knowing where you belong, etc. It's shockingly mature and it was wonderful handled. The animation is stunning, the music is beautiful, the story is heartbreaking and mature, the characters are fully developed, it's just fantastic. Within thirty minutes I knew that I was going to love this film and I sure as hell did. I didn't expect to give this movie five stars, but it left such an impact on me that I just have to. See this movie.
