Belle is an excellent film with Gugu Mbatha-Raw in the starring role as the mixed race child raised in the home
of the Lord Chief Justice, played by Tom Wilkinson, who struggles with the need for 18th century propriety and
his promise to the deceased father of Belle Lindsay to love and protect the child. This was the age when the
evils of chattel slavery were still thought of as legitimate trade, and so Belle is not allowed to sit at dinner when
guests are invited, nor be allowed to attend a debutante coming out party.
Sadly Belle, a beautiful young woman of dusky skin has to be almost hidden away.
The film also incorporates the story of the Zong massacre in which over 100 slaves were thrown overboard from
a slave ship so that the owners might claim insurance.
Belle and her suitor John Davinier, brilliantly portrayed by Sam Reid help lighten the story from one of racism and
slavery to the changes that had to come forth with the Abolition of Slavery Act. Excellent performances from all.
It is a film of sadness, hope, romance and ultimately deliverance.
