Thanks to Icon Films , we have 5 x double passes to give away to BELLE – in Australian cinemas from May 8.

 BELLE is the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mabatha-Raw), who was the illegitimate daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral and a slave. Belle was a remarkable figure in 18th century society, being the first mixed-race woman to be raised as an aristocrat. Being in the care of her great-uncle, Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the colour of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. Left to wonder what her future will hold, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.
