Get Our Full Review


Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mabatha-Raw) was born of a Royal Navy Admiral (Matthew Goode) and his black West Indies' mistress, and then raised by her great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) in England. The young woman, who bears the color of her mother, now struggles to be accepted in an aristocratic society where her "type" is usually allocated to the class of slave.

Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Belle.

The history of the abolition movement in England is depicted in Amazing Grace. The movie Lincoln, about the US’s fight to end slavery, also features characters whose attitudes are influenced by the relationships they have with slaves. The idea of an inter-racial relationship was still a controversy in the 196os—as depicted in Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?
