  • Belle isn't a perfect movie; in some ways it's obvious. But even if it's not true to history, it's true to that painting and worthy of its inspiration. show more

  • The layered film's blend of Austen-style romance, courtroom drama and historical look at the British slave trade works surprisingly well, though there are moments — especially involving the conniving suitors — that teeter on melodrama. show more

  • Belle, with its country manors and its city slums, its snooty nobles and its fiery idealists, its ballroom dances and barroom conspiracies, brings these themes to a dramatic head: romance and race, privilege and justice. show more

    HISTORICAL AND IMPECCABLY DONE. A REAL MOMENT IN WESTERN HISTORY FOR ALL OF US MODERN PEOPLE. (SURE, SOME CREATIVE LICENSE WAS DONE--AND--WHEN IS IT NOT DONE? IT IS JUST A GOOD MOVIE. SEEN IT MORE THAN ONCE WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE; WILL BUY IT FOR MY LIBRARY. I LIKE THE POINT IT MAKES ABOUT PEOPLE. IT IS RATHER "FREEING" OF OLD IDEALS AND IDEAS.--MO
