Dan Stevens also gets a nod singing his solo, Evermore, considering he learned to sing for this role. That was a song and performance packed with emotion!
In the last thirty minutes of the movie we see the true nature of each character coming forth, Gaston as the blood thirsty villain, the Beast as the reformed self-sacrificing hero, Belle as the young woman who finds love and looks beyond her own dreams and needs, and LeFou finally being true to himself and not mindlessly following the town bully. Kudos also to Kevin Kline who plays the part of Maurice, Belle's father, as a more dignified, less-looney and loving father. He is an amazing actor!
