"Belle" lives up to its name

I saw this film yesterday with my mom and my sister. My sister hates period films and even she liked it! The story is so human, and the characters were fleshed-out and relatable. The cast did a great job, the directing and cinematography were beautiful, the costumes looked great, and the writing was well done. My one complaint is that at times, the delivery felt a bit stagey, but overall the movie transcends that issue. The film is PG and I'd say it's appropriate for people ages 10 and up, though 10 year olds might have trouble grasping some of the cultural references for that time (i.e. what is a dowry?). In this sense, the movie seems geared more toward teenagers and adults, despite the fact that it's a very clean film, especially compared to a lot of other movies released these days.

This was a great movie with fantastic actors. There is much to learn from this movie - so much history is lost so I thank this producer/writer for enlightening us
