The Life Of Dido Elizabeth Belle Inspires The Upcoming Movie "Belle" (EXCLUSIVE CLIP)

Posted: Updated:

On May 2 Fox Searchlight will celebrate the story of Admiral Sir John Lindsay’s daughter, Dido Elizabeth Belle, in the aptly titled motion picture, “Belle.”

Starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sam Reid, Tom Wilkinson, and Emily Watson among others, the film is inspired by true events of Belle, the illegitimate mixed-race daughter of Admiral Lindsay, who was raised by her aristocratic great-uncle, Lord Mansfield. 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.

Check out an exclusive clip from the film, before it hits theaters next month.
