“Describing her film as a hybrid of ‘the Jane Austen elements we know so well – the marriage market, the lives of girls growing up into society ladies, the romantic longing – combined with a story about the end of slavery’, Asante paints an enthralling portrait of a woman struggling to define her identity, caught between stairs in terms of social custom and protocol. Too elevated to eat with the servants, yet too lowly to dine (in company, at least) with her "family", Dido must find her own space in a world in which her colour marks her as unique among her peers.” (Guardian)
