Belle Passes

belle-BELLE_one-sheet_rgb (1)

Inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral, Belle is left to wonder if she will every find love. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), 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. Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.

MSQ will host a screening of Belle on Monday, May 19 at 7:30pm at the AMC Waterfront 22. For your chance at two tickets, please comment below with your favorite royalty movie. I’ll start with mine: Richie Rich (1994). Granted little Richie Rich didn’t sit on a throne or hold a title, but he did live in a huge castle. I think that counts for something! Black Knight (2001) comes in a close second place. The movie is hilarious and a different type of project for my favorite funny guy, Martin Lawrence.

This contest closes Friday, May 16th at 5:00 PM. Any comments posted after that time will not be considered. Thank you!

Much Love,

Movie Scene Queen
