Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has it all looks, intelligence, wealth and opportunity and a wicked
cruel streak. Prone to mocking and humiliating aggressively unattractive classmates, he zeroes in
on Goth classmate Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen), inviting her to the school's extravagant environmental
bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly savage fashion. She
retaliates by casting a spell that physically transforms him into everything he despises. Enraged by
his horrible and unrecognizable appearance he confronts Kendra and learns that the only solution to
the curse is to find someone that will love him as he is a task he considers impossible.
Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle's callous father (Peter Krause) banishes him to Brooklyn with a
sympathetic housekeeper (LisaGay Hamilton) and blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). As Kyle ponders
how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of
killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for
his daughter Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) if she will consent to live in Kyle's Brooklyn home. Thus
begins Kyle's journey to discover true love in this hyper-modern retelling of the classic "Beauty and
the Beast" story
