Gorgeous New Images from “Belle” starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Fox Searchlight Pictures is a distributor for an upcoming historical drama entitled, Belle. This film looks gorgeous and the story behind it is so inspiring. There have been fifteen (15) new images released from the film!

Belle is based on a true story about Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), who was an illegitimate mixed-race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. After her father falls ill, she is raised by her great-uncle (Tom Wilkinson) and great-aunt (Emily Watson); Lord and Lady Mansfield.

Even though Belle is part of a well-to-do family, her race prohibits her from partaking in family and social traditions. She falls for a young man named John Davinier (Sam Reid), who wants these close-mined ideals to change. In working together, Belle, Lord Mansfield, and John strive to end slavery in England.

Belle was directed by Amma Asante and also stars Matthew Goode, Sarah Gadon, Penelope Wilton, Miranda Richardson, and Tom Felton.

The film has already circulated through several festivals, but will be heading to theaters on May 2 in the United States. Festivals it has premiered at include Toronto International Film Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival, San Francisco International Film Festival, and the Montclair Film Festival.
