About BELLE: Inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Captain. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife, Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. An idealistic young vicar's son bent on change falls in love with Belle and together, they shape Lord Mansfield's role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.
