Default "Bella" the movie

The producer of "Bella" was the special guest on Life on the Rock (EWTN) last night. It was a wonderful interview. The producer talked about miracles on the set and miracles (such as the saving of unborn lives) as a result of this movie. It has won awards and is opening October 26. The producer is asking for prayers and that the movie gets a great turn-out to send a message to Hollywood. The film is in major theaters. If the film gets a great turn-out then more theaters will pick it up.

From Catholic Answers webisite: (additional links found at the following site)
In a film set to be released this year and a top award winner at Toronto's International Film Festival. Directed by Alejandro Monteverde, and written by Monteverde and Patrick Million. "It is expertly made, expertly acted, and profoundly moving" says Russell Shaw in a recent article about the film. He goes onto say, "Along the way the audience enters intimately into these two people's lives. More than one handkerchief was being dabbed at its owner's eyes as the screening I attended concluded". Bella features the actor Eduardo Verastegui who experienced a conversion several years ago and now aims to dedicate his talents to Christ.) One of the other main characters is played by Tammy Blanchard.

Plot: Two people whose lives are changed forever discover that sometimes it takes losing it all to finally appreciate the things that truly matter. Bella is a heartwarming love story that goes much deeper than romance. It is an unforgettable story that celebrates unborn life, family, relationships and our capacity for love in the face of the unexpected.

Default It's a revealing and disgusting shame

I also look forward to seeing the movie, and find it ironic and revealing that a great movie such as this so well made and carrying such beautiful messages cannot move people as much as having the witch Hillary Clinton decide that declaring herself pro-life after the Warning is a good political move.
