Do you ever just hate someone bc they remind you of yourself
Belle (2013) dir. Amma Asante
I don’t think you guys know just how powerful this scene was. Literally when I was in the audience I could just see a lot of the women of color affected by this scene. A lot of us have gone through this self denial and self hate through the effects of white beauty standards and beliefs forced down our throats.This was the first time I had ever seen something that I had personally felt before portrayed on the screen and it put tears in my eyes. If you haven’t seen this movie, go see it. It’s out on dvd/bluray/streaming
Oh my God I need to see this movie. I have gone through this scene exactly, down to trying to rub the color out of my skin in self-loathing.
