Remember Benedict Arnold? He had a wife. And her story is really juicy, at least in this historical fiction novel. You’ll hear about his wife, Peggy, through the eyes of her maid. It’s the Revolutionary War meets “Downton Abbey.” Trust us on this one.
BELLE follows the story of Dido Elizebeth Belle, biracial daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay and an enslaved woman named Maria Belle. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife, Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. // dir. by Amma Asante, 2014.
