Belle featurette from Fox Searchlight Pictures
AHH! CanNOT wait for this to come out!!
i love the fact that a black woman directed this
Black woman director. Black woman writer. Black woman lead. Love this.
Everybody get the fuck out there and watch it. Take a friend. Take two friends. Go twice.
Hollywood has a vested interest in watching this film fail.
Hollywood does not like leads who are not white men.
Hollywood tolerates writers who are not men, but not often.
Hollywood doesn’t like directors who aren’t white men, either, unless they’re Alfonso Cuaron, who is still a man.
Hollywood likes to prove that these are films that “people”—that means you, that means me—will not watch, so they can go back to making movies where the men are white and the women are props.
Make this film explode. Make it impossible to ignore. See it opening weekend and tell everyone you meet how it spoke to you and why.
Look for online reviews and leave comments. If your local newspaper has no critic section, write a letter to the editor. Tell a friend. Tell two friends. Tell your mother’s friends who like romcoms.
You can do something just by spending ten bucks and opening your mouth about it.
What are you doing? You’re encouraging visibility. You’re encouraging diversity. You’re encouraging women in an industry that’s very Good Ole Boys Club.
And also, you get to see what looks like it’s going to be one damned fine movie.
I’ve been wanting this movie since FOREVER. Dido Belle is a history character I became obsessed with in high school. I was hoping she would be the “black princess” Disney would make. I was hoping she would get a great movie everyone would adore. It’s not out in Québec Yet, but you bet your BUM I’ll be in the front of the line when it DOES.
I’ve been waiting for this movie FOR MONTHS. If it doesn’t get released in Poland, I’ll cut something. And cry.
I just saw this movie last weekend and it’s amazing!! It’s such a good story and one that everyone should see. Go see it please!!
*here’s* a list of current places you can find it playing within the US. it’s a very limited release at this point, but if you can at all get yourself to a theater that’s showing it, i encourage you to go! it was a very enjoyable film with wonderful acting, beautiful scenery, and gorgeous costumes. i’m so glad i managed to see it!!

This girl deserves an award for doing what a lot of us want to do.
This girl. I must be friends with her.

Don’t you see? That’s exactly the reason I have to stay.”
