Today Amma Asante’s film “Belle” hits theaters and we have to say we haven’t been this excited about a period piece in a long time. “Belle” tells the story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the biracial daughter of a British Naval officer and an African woman who eventually becomes an heiress and even helps, indirectly, to change the course of slavery in Great Britain and eventually throughout the world. English actress Gu Gu Mbatha-Raw is playing the lad role in the film and last weekend we got to chat with her about this incredible story, how she relates to her character as the daughter of an English nurse and South African doctor, and how true the movie is to Belle’s real life.

Check out the video above with the gorgeous actress and, more importantly, be sure to see “Belle” in theaters this weekend.
