A change from Superheroes (or is it?)
After a run of sci-fi, fantasy and superhero movies, my friend and I went to see “Belle”— a movie completely devoid of explosions, sword-fights, or superpowered punch-ups. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and two grown men got suspiciously watery eyes.
It wasn’t in the least bit “poor me/ain’t it awful.” If fact Dido Belle almost was a superhero, but using charm and intelligence to kick arse. I expect that actress is going places.
Am in awe of how they managed to do the film without seeming in the least bit mushy or sentimental; must have taken an incredibly steady set of hands on the helm.
In short, recommended!
