Movie Trailer: BELLE

When I went off to university, I started out majoring in economics, and later switched to history. In high school, I hated history. Canadian and American history, told through the high school curriculum had a very limited scope. It was the history of white people. Aboriginal Canadians, who are instrumental to the fabric of Canada, were covered in two classes. The African slave trade was but a footnote. When I got to university and took my first American history course, I discovered that history wasn't just the study of broad themes and and major events, but the study of individual contributors. I discovered that studying one person's life, reflected, and was a reflection of, the era that they lived in.

The story of Dido Belle Lindsay is one of those reflections.

On May 2, 2014, the BELLE, opens in limited release in North American theatres. Directed by Amma Asante (a black, female director YAY!), and starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Matthew Goode, and Emily Watson, BELLE is inspired by the true story of Dido Belle Lindsay, the illegitimate mixed-race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay.
Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife, Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing. While her cousin Elizabeth chases suitors for marriage, Belle is left on the sidelines wondering if she will ever find love. After meeting an idealistic young vicar's son bent on changing society, he and Belle help shape Lord Mansfield's role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.
Have a look at a featurette for the film.
