This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Various gentlemen offer to marry Beauty, but she again refuses as to be with her father. Laboring with her brothers and father made her grow stronger and healthier. The two older sisters did nothing to help in the new country home; instead they despise Beauty for being content with their poor situation. Gaston is Belle’s only suitor. The family lives in a modest house the entire time.
   After a year in the modest country home, the father receives a letter telling him a ship has arrived with some of his property. The two older sisters asked their father for fine clothes, Beauty asked for a single rose. This does not happen in the movie.
   The father went to check on his property that came in with the ship but found it was seized to pay his debts. The father travels to a fair to sell his new invention; a wood chopping machine.
   The father gets lost in the woods thirty miles from home and comes upon a palace. He enters the palace where he eats and drinks then sleeps for the night. On his way to the fair, he gets lost, loses his horse then finds/enters a palace. He is offered service by the enchanted inhabitants.
   The father awakens the next morning to see new clothes laid out for him along with breakfast. He then picks a rose from the garden prior to leaving. This does not happen in the movie.
