Belle

Inspired by a painting of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) beside her cousin Lady Elizabeth (Sara Gaden), the film follows the growing racial and familial tensions as the illegitimate mixed-race daughter of a Royal Navy officer is brought to England by her father and left in the care of his uncle (Tom Wilkinson) to be raised alongside her cousin Elizabeth, all while abolitionists fight for the end of slavery.
