Bella



I have heard a lot about the movie Bella and this morning I finally got to see for myself. It's a sweet movie. Pro-life without being preachy. Very appealing actors portraying a loving, supportive family. The message of love conquers all...of life and hope are uplifting and joyful.

Initially there was some difficulty in distributing the film, but it found it's audience, and an email campaign and word of mouth have made it a sleeper hit.

A more mature handling of an unplanned pregnancy story as compared to Juno. I found it a lovely story. I hope you will see if for yourself.

I had heard about this and now, after reading your review, will definitely rent it. It sounds like something I would enjoy.

I hope your week is a sweet one!

Love,

I have not heard of this one Terri. I did enjoy Juno though...I liked the humourous pro-life approach it took. Your blog is very welcoming and interesting! I love your sidebar, so much to read there. Thanks for visiting me today!

Thanks for the movie review. You sound like a knowledgeable movie reviewer! Well said. It swayed me to a possible yes. (I'm into movies my kids will watch WITH me right now ... and they are so dang picky.)
