After being released around the world over two years ago, Lea Seydoux‘s French version of Beauty and the Beast is finally hitting theaters in the U.S.
The 31-year-old actress plays the role of Belle while Vincent Cassel plays the Beast. The foreign language film, directed by Christophe Gans, will be released in select theaters on September 23.
Here is the movie’s official synopsis: “1810. After the wreck of his ships, a financially-ruined merchant (André Dussollier) exiles himself in the countryside with his six children. Among them is Belle (Seydoux), his youngest daughter, a joyful girl full of grace. One day, during an arduous journey, the merchant stumbles across the magical domain of the Beast (Cassel), who sentences him to death for stealing a rose. Feeling responsible for the terrible fate which has befallen her family, Belle decides to sacrifice herself and take her father’s place. At the Beast’s castle, it is not death that awaits Belle, but a strange life in which fantastical moments mingle with gaiety and melancholy. Every night, at dinner, Belle and the Beast sit down together. They learn about each other, taming one another like two strangers who are total opposites. When she has to repulse his amorous advances, Belle tries to pierce the mysteries of the Beast and his domain. And when night falls, the Beast’s past is revealed to her bit by bit in her dreams. It is a tragic story, which tells her that this solitary and fearsome being was once a majestic prince. Armed with her courage, ignoring every danger, and opening her heart, Belle manages to release the Beast from his curse. And in doing so, she discovers true love.”

The 49-year-old French actor, best known for his work in Black Swan and the Ocean’s movies, is seen in a new photo shoot and video feature.
“Vuarnet is an iconic brand,” Vincent said about the campaign. “Their products feature top-quality lenses and embody cool style. When I was 20, they were the must-have accessory. Back then, I had a pair of model 03 glasses, which I wore for years. I’m thrilled to have been selected as Vuarnet‘s ambassador. The brand’s products are French, and I like the idea of helping Vuarnet to reclaim its rightful place and build on its excellent reputation. I’m particularly fond of things that are new and unique.”
