    Before the Trailer, We Thought: Premiering in Toronto to warm but not ecstatic acclaim, Amma Asante's "Belle" appeared to be fresh off the endless conveyor belt of cookie-cutter costume dramas, rife with the sort of Jane Austen-era period trappings and muted romantic intrigue that has made many of t...

    Fox Searchlight Pick Up Amma Asante's Period Drama 'Belle' Starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw & Tom Wilkinson

    Though it went mostly underseen in the U.S. , Amma Asante's 2004 film "A Way Of Life" was one of the best debut films by a British director in the last decade.

    Today In Unexpected Pairings: Kevin James & Emily Watson Star In Indie 'Little Boy'
