I heartily recommend the new movie Bella that just opened. There was a special screening tonight at a local theater where we got a chance to speak to the lead actor, Eduardo Verastegui, who seems absolutely genuine about putting together movies that express positive messages. He told us that after giving his life to Christ, he realizes it’s not about him or the fame and fortune that goes with being a star. It’s about Him. He says he wants to make moves that he can take his mom and sisters to and not feel like he ought to hide their eyes during some scenes.

Bella is a movie like that. It shows the struggle of a young woman and the tough choices she faces when she finds out she’s pregnant, and the remorse of a young man whose life was shattered when he accidentally kills a young girl with his car. They have more in common than you think. A positive, pro-life movie.

The movie opened in limited release, so next weekend may be your last chance to see it before it goes to DVD.
