Belle - Movie Review

BELLE follows the story of Dido Elizebeth Belle, biracial daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay and an enslaved woman named Maria Belle. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife, Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. // dir. by Amma Asante, 2014.

Omg, I was obsessed with this movie when I saw the trailer, then it was in theaters in my busiest month for soccer which totally sucked, so I had to wait until last week to watch it, and now, I've watched three times and I LOVE IT(with every breath I breathe. Yes, I just made that reference)!
