Chud reviews the film Belle:
In theory, this makes for some potentially interesting story material. In practice, it falls completely flat.
To start with, the film is a romance at its core. So much of this story depends on whether Elizabeth and Dido will find worthy husbands. The problem, of course, is that old English romance is cold and sterile by design, completely void of passion. This might be a solvable problem if the characters were well-written, entertaining to watch, or had any degree of chemistry — that’s what made “Jane Eyre” and “Pride & Prejudice” such enduring classics. Here, no such luck. (Williamb)
