Opens Friday, Jun 13, 2014 Synopsis: Director Amma Asante (A Way of Life) teams with screenwriter Misan Sagay to tell the remarkable story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) in this richly detailed period drama. The illegitimate, mixed-race offspring of Admiral Sir John Lindsay (Matthew Goode), Dido was raised under the care of her great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson), a noted aristocrat. As a result of her lineage Dido grew up torn between two worlds, longing to find true love as her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) was courted for marriage. Dido's fate took an unexpected turn, however, when she fell in love with the idealistic son of a vicar. Along with Dido, the vicar's son would not only help to advance the career of Lord Mansfield, but to also eventually halt the practice of slavery in England as well. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, Matthew Goode, Sarah Gadon Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
