Putting My Money Where My Mouth Is

Movies & TV

I posted on Saturday about my charitable giving in connection with my business. That was really a Money, Meet Mouth post, Part 1. Here is Money, Meet Mouth, Part 2.

Annoyed at the limited theatrical release of the movie Belle by director Amma Asante, I pre-ordered it earlier in the summer.

And now it’s finally here! YAY!

As an Anglo-Saxonist, I like early history more than recent history. However, being a fan on Jane Austen has gotten me interested in late 18th / early 19th centuries to some extent, and Belle sits squarely in that era. Plus, it most emphatically is not yet another re-hashing of the most often repeated story of the past two hundred years, i.e. the story of a white dude with father issues. (I can’t tell you how tired I am of that cliché.)

Looking forward to watching Belle!
