The film, based on a true story, follows the life of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu-Mbatha Raw), an illegitimate mixed race young woman raised in an aristocratic family in Georgian England. Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing.
While her cousin Elizabeth (Gadon) chases suitors for marriage, Belle is left on the sidelines wondering if she will ever find love.
Belle opens in select theaters on May 2nd.
