Belle is better than 12 years a slave?

ok so everyone I know who has seen Belle loves it [via FB]

my bff saw an advanced screening of it w/other screenwriters etc. and she said it was essentially a lifetime movie.LOL  but i mean she's a writer so she's more critical

BUT she told me to go see it bc it was a 1. black female director 2. black female producer 3. black female lead.  that sh*t never happens. I think she said Eve's Bayou might have had that triumvirate.  So I'll support it for that. 

eta: I saw this thread when first posted and I legit just exited the thread.  I could not even comment.

i saw the trailer for belle

I'll see it if the pining for white acceptance isn't overbearing... I got that vibe from the trailer 

So my spirit was right to avoid 12 yrs a slave? The one exceptional black and the white savior are two themes that I can not abide

no 12 years was good. white people did have to save Solomon though bc they had his freedom papers--in that sense it wasn't

I will pass

rather watch Queen


Do you honestly believe that I would actually dig a movie where this is the central plot? Dead

The movie is dope because she doesn't play the TROPE that Halle 'yessa massa' Berry played in Queen.

There is so much more dignity for Black/biracial women in this movie then there has been for others because....

1. It's about her. She is the lead, she is the star. You feel HER pain and you're concerned with HER plight

2. Her father claims her (this is a central theme in the movie) whereas her full white cousin is not claimed by her father

3. While this could be considered a romance movie, I personally felt that romance was in the backdrop of the main issue. The main issue was the immorality of Black bodies being considered valueless lives but valuable cargo

4. She doesn't beg to be accepted. She is accepted (though not entirely) by many and when she's not she certainly doesn't beg

5. She is not simply pretty, she is smart and an activist at heart. She is the real hero of the story, the Whites are just a vessel


In 12 Years a Slave, black/biracial women are in the background abused and used. Their feelings, trials and tribulations are not central to the story. It felt like slave p0rn. Very melodramatic with no real purpose. Not the worst slave movie but not the best either

I didn't like 12 years a slave that much. I like the butler way better. Belle looks good , but yah I feel the biracial lead will draw white people to the theater and maybe it makes it look like being biracial is better than being fully black.
