"A remarkable story brought to life with dazzling animation, Belle finds writer-director Mamoru Hosoda setting a brilliant new benchmark...96% FRESH!"-RottenTomatoes.
Suzu is a shy, everyday high school student living in a rural village. For years, she has only been a shadow of herself. But when she enters "U", a massive virtual world, she escapes into her online persona as Belle, a gorgeous and globally-beloved singer. One day, her concert is interrupted by a monstrous creature chased by vigilantes. As their hunt escalates, Suzu embarks on an emotional and epic quest to uncover the identity of this mysterious "beast" and to discover her true self in a world where you can be anyone.

"Belle is a beautifully observed, dazzlingly animated sci-fi fairy tale about our online-offline double lives - it's Hosoda's finest film since 2012's Wolf Children, and perhaps his best to date."Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph (UK)
