Belle is based on Dido Elizabeth Belle, the mixed–race daughter of a British Naval officer and an African woman. Dido meets John Davinier, a young lawyer and apprentice of Lord Mansfield (Dido's guardian), who sees John as being beneath Dido. Yet John and Dido's meeting is the beginning of a love story that catapults Dido onto a path of self-discovery, and forces Lord Mansfield, the Lord Chief Justice, to confront his own views on race, society and the antiquated laws of the time. (From Wikipedia.)
