Starring Dan Stevens as Prince Adam / Beast, Emma Watson as Belle and Luke Evans asย Gaston, the new Beauty & The Beast trailer is finally here…

I’ll be watching this simply because I love the animated version. Interestingly though, I don’t currently sense the magical feel the live action version of Cinderella (2015) gave me after I watched that specific trailer. May the magic be there with the finished product of this new adaptation.

Beauty & The Beast Release Dates: March 17th, 2016 (US & UK); March 29th (FR)…

Happy Film Loving ๐Ÿ™‚

BELLE (2014): For Your Faith In Love & Humanity

At the centre of Director, Amma Asanteโ€™s film is the story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral.

Brought to England from the West Indies to live with her aristocratic great uncle and his wife, the young Dido over time, learns of the matters of class and rank that rule her new world. A world with laws she simply must not accept, for the sake of her own dignity, happiness and sense of self.

Great performances, particularly from Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Wilkinson and Sam Reid.

Watch it for the story of an admirably strong young woman,ย a courageous young man, a beautifulย love story and great characters from an interesting and important time in history – 18th century England, when slavery was still a grave and common reality.

As is the case with most historical films I watch, Iโ€™m left with a sense of gratitude for the times in which I live and reminded of how things do change; rarely at a satisfactory pace, but change they do.

Happy Belle ๐Ÿ™‚
