BELLE is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield, Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status denies her noble social standing. While her cousin 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, Belle helps to shape Lord Mansfield’s role to end slavery in England. The phenomenal cast includes Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Belle, Matthew Goode, Tom Wilkinson, and Emily Watson.
