Comedy

Belle

Belle is a rarity in the summer movie season — it's smart.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Belle is set in the 18th century, but its themes of race and class feel thoroughly contemporary. Don’t be fooled by the prevalence of bodices and powdered wigs. Like the best costume dramas, Belle has resonance for modern-day audiences, especially in a nation with a rapidly growing biracial population and an ever-widening gulf between the very rich and everyone else.
