Belle*

In late eighteenth century England, Dido Elizabeth Belle is born to a white British admiral and a black Caribbean slave. Although the admiral's wealthy family is appalled, custom dictates that they raise Dido as an aristocrat. Britain's imposing Lord Mansfield is both Dido's uncle and the family patriarch and demands that she respects both the law and the social codes of her station. She is a lady, but an embarrassment. How will she ever find a husband?

    I've never been to this theater so I think it would be best for us to meet near wherever the FilmFest DC tables are set-up. My outfit today is tan hat (same in the photos from yesterday), tan shirt, green slacks, black shoes & jacket. We can mingle until 6:15 then take our seats. Also, I was considering Jaleo afterwards for eats. Anyone interested?

      I didn't see this message until after the movie (first time I have ever been to a film where they force audience members to turn off their cell phones; which I think is a good thing). Even if I saw it before then though, I'm not sure how able I would have been to save a seat because of it being sold out and my waiting a while to greet people upstairs, I could barely get a halfway decent seat for myself. If you made it, I hope you enjoyed it.

      No problem :) By the time I got there it was packed but I found a seat. Loved the movie!

    Besides the movie being really good, I thought the theater itself was the best I have been to in a while with the classy leather seats.
    Someone rated it with only 2 stars - would whoever did like to say why?

      Sorry to see that you can't join us. It will be coming to AFI next month so maybe you can catch it there.

      Can we buy an individual ticket for Belle and not for the whole film fest?

      Nevermind, I see how to do it!
