For all motherless children and childless mothers: see Belle on Mother's Day

We'll meet up in front of the Aquarius Theater in Palo Alto at about 12:40 for the film (starts at 1:00). Afterwards, we'll catch a late lunch/early dinner at a nearby place we all agree on. I will provide a cell phone number for people who rsvp.
Here's the information about Belle - it sounds intriguing:
This film is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife, Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing. While her cousin Elizabeth chases suitors for marriage, Belle is left on the sidelines wondering if she will ever find love. After meeting an idealistic young vicar's son bent on changing society, he and Belle help shape Lord Mansfield's role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.

    The film was a surprise hit with everyone and we had great conversation over Patxi's pizza. Thanks for joining in everybody.
