Fox Searchlight’s released a behind-the-scenes look at the dramatic film Belle based on true events and starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Wilkinson, Sarah Gadon, and Matthew Goode. In this two minute featurette, the cast and director Amma Asante discuss bringing the story to life on the screen.
 
Sam Reid, Miranda Richardson, Penelope Wilton, Tom Felton, James Norton, and Emily Watson also star in Belle which will be heading to theaters on May 2, 2014.


The Plot:
 
Belle is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay (Matthew Goode). Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing. While her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) chases suitors for marriage, Belle is left on the sidelines wondering if she will ever find love. After meeting an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on changing society, he and Belle help shape Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.
