- Discussion about the movie “Belle”.
The mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral is raised by her aristocratic great-uncle in 18th century England.
- Discussion about the major theme of whether class trumps race.
- Another theme was sexism and how women were essentially the slaves of their husbands.
- Discussion about a previous show in which Heit & Cheri discussed prostitution and men trying to control women.
- Discussion about the idea of marrying for stability rather than love.
- Discussion about how even the men in the movie tried to get a class upgrade through marriage.
- Discussion about how people are expected to show they love someone–for the men it is through monetary gifts and for women it is how they take care of the man and his children.
- Discussion about the determination of love having to do with sacrifice.
- Heit thought the movie was boring, and Cheri thought it was a decent movie.
