"Elegantly appointed and unabashedly romantic."

Claudia Puig, USA Today.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw delivers "a breakthrough performance" (Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times) in this "gorgeous must-see film" (Cori Murray, Essence) that's based on an extraordinary true story.

Although Dido Elizabeth Belle (Mbatha-Raw), an 18th century English woman of mixed race, is raised in privilege by her aristocratic great-uncle (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), she is denied a proper social standing because of her skin color.

But when Dido falls in love with a young idealistic lawyer (Sam Reid) who aspires to create positive change, she finds herself caught between two worlds.

With everything to lose, she struggles to convince those around her - and the society in which she lives - to overcome their biases and accept her fully.

Only if she succeeds will she find true happiness in this exquisite masterpiece that also stars Miranda Richardson, Penelope Wilton and Matthew Goode. -- (C) Fox Searchlight Pictures, 2013, UK.
