Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine84 - I love that director Amma Assante who co-wrote and directed another movie I’m in love with called Belle(2013) has found another piece that combines history, race and romance all in one. Oyelowo and Pike have great chemistry, very believable as a couple, eventhough the two are separated throughout a good bit of the movie.
