Spoiler Alert Saturday :: my thoughts on Belle

15 Jun
  1. SO PRETTY.  Pretty colors, pretty costumes, pretty cinematography.
  2. Very important.  Very, very important.  Mixed-race female protagonist (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) (in a true story from history!  An important true story, one which I’d never heard before, and that seems so shocking in retrospect) in a movie directed by a woman of color (Amma Asante) with a script written by a woman of color (Misan Sagay).
  3. Also, sisterly love.  That alone was thrilling.

In short, I won’t talk more because you just need to support this movie and give it the love it deserves.
