#204 History Belle.

Last night I watched the movie Belle. It is set in England with Kenwood House as the backdrop. It is based on a true story about Dido Elizabeth Belle Lindsay. I really love period dramas and this one was divine, replete with a moving love story and a few horrid characters as well. I enjoyed the storyline and plot. History was interwoven throughout and some important themes were explored, such as slavery and the place of women in society at the time. I’m so glad I found it and am certain I’ll watch it again. As usual it lead me down various paths of new discoveries and research. I wonder if Jane Austen knew of Belle? If so, I wonder what her thoughts were? Some things I will never know. xo
