” …too high to eat with the servants. Too low to join (you at) dinner.” Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate, mixed-race daughter of a Royal Navy Captain describes her position to the Earl of Mansfield in whose home she has grown up. Without status, Belle aligns herself with a young emancipator, while the Earl presides over a case in which a ship’s crew is accused of drowning the slaves on board.

This revelatory drama on the period comes alive with the lead performances, particularly Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Belle.

€3.85 including regular tea/coffee before the screening. Wild Strawberries is our film club for over 55s. If you are lucky enough to look younger please don’t take offense if we ask your age.
