This drama film is about an illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral and is raised by her aristocratic grandfather. It is directed by Amma Asante and stars Emily Watson, Matthew Goode, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw among others. It should be available at websites offering free download movies.
The film was inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle. She was raised by her great uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife. Although she was a product of a mixed race relationship, she had certain privileges because of her lineage. But the color of her skin prevented her from fully enjoying the perks of her social standing. Her story contributed to the end of slavery in England.
This film has a beautiful cast, and filmed in stately surroundings. It is a beautiful period piece where you will be able to appreciate the issues of racism, sexism and classism in 18th-century England.
