I’ve been hearing an ever-growing buzz about the movie “Bella.” It has won nearly every film festival it’s been in, including the people’s choice award at the Toronto Film Festival, but it is evidently being panned by many critics (I’ve never really paid attention to critics anyway, though I know others who do.) The film has a pro-life message and themes that have made it difficult to find a company willing to market it. As a result, it’s opening is limited. In the Nashville area it is going to be at the Regal in Green Hills. Show times are: 12:00, 2:25, 4:50, 7:20, 10:05.
Here’s the trailer:
And here are some comments about the film on Touchstone’s Mere Comments.
I met one of the producers of this film on Saturday and he spoke of his pro-life motivation behind the film. On Friday, after I gave a talk on “Voting for Pontius Pilate: Washing Our Hands of Abortion,” I was told about a government hearing that had just ended the same day in which several dozen women testified to the harm they suffered due to abortion. Also, I was told, several thousand women have been filing affadavits about the after-effects, the harm they experienced from abortion.
I was told a few weeks ago by a Republican candidate for Senate in Illinois that the pro-life cause was over and that we live in a pro-choice culture, and, not these exact words, get over it. He was just being realistic.
