Back at Broadway for the Easter holidays, Belle is the latest from critically acclaimed filmmaker Mamoru Hosoda (Mirai).
High-school student Suzu struggles with the realities of her day-to-day life and finds solace in an alternate reality via the “U” app, a world she shares with five billion fellow members. There, she disappears into her alter-ego Belle, a globally adored singer.
But it’s not long before her online life is disrupted by a presence known as the ‘Dragon’, and Suzu/Belle must set out on a quest to find out the identity of the beast.
