Clean, fantastic, and fun Period Drama

I loved this movie.  It had everything I could possibly want in a movie: great acting, compelling story, beautiful scenery, sumptuous costumes, romance and it was clean!   
 
Watch the trailer.
 
"Belle" is based on a real story and a intriguing painting of two cousins:
Dido (Belle) and her cousin Elizabeth were raised by their Great Uncle and Aunt, Lord and Lady Mansfield.  In the movie, both ladies portray how difficult it was to be a woman (whatever your color) during the 18th century with very few options outside of marriage. 
 
Dido's uncle is the chief justice (kind of like the head of the supreme court) and there is a huge case about a slave ship and whether or not you can insure human cargo. 
 
Two gentlemen of good family who are interested in the cousins.
 
Enter a young idealistic man who wants to change the world.
 
I don't want to give spoilers.  A thought-provoking, beautiful movie about family and love.

Brash Sophie wants to be an inventor, and demure Mariah wants to be an artist. Both long to visit London for the summer—Sophie to see the Queen’s Great Exhibition and Mariah to study the world’s finest collection of paintings. But when their cantankerous aunt answers their letter pleading for a place to stay, she insists she only has time and room to spare for one of them.
So, Mariah and Sophie hatch a clever scheme: They will travel to London together and take turns playing the part of "Sophie".
At first the plan runs like clockwork. But as the girls avoid getting caught by increasingly narrow margins and two handsome gentlemen—both of whom think they’re fal…
