The masterpiece film that touched the hearts of countless viewers across this continent is also one of the most honored films of the year. An unusual film with a Christian message was chosen for the highly coveted People's Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival, Best Picture and Best Actor at the 2008 MovieGuide Awards, and the prestigious Legacy Award from the Smithsonian Institute's Latino Center. During its time in the theaters, Bella was ranked #1 by Yahoo, Fandango, and Rotten Tomatoes.

Have you seen Bella? If so, here’s your invitation to see it again... and again. If not, take this opportunity to experience a rare film. Bella is a powerful and moving, utterly unique story that will lift your spirits and capture your heart, and even better, it’s based on a true story.

International soccer star (Eduardo Verástegui) is on his way to sign a multi-million dollar contract when his career comes to an abrupt and tragic end. A beautiful waitress (Tammy Blanchard), struggling to make it in New York City, discovers something about herself that she's unprepared for. In one irreversible moment, their lives are turned upside down...until a simple gesture of kindness brings them both together, turning an ordinary day into an unforgettable experience.

Bella champions strong father figures as well as a positive portrayal of Latinos in general. Wrapped around this unusual story is a refreshing view of family life and the many ways the characters show unconditional love for one another. Not to mention the mouth-watering cooking scenes that draw them all together in the restaurant and at home. You’ll strain to catch a whiff of the aromas coming from the food that almost seems to be a character itself. Don’t watch this film on an empty stomach! So pick up a copy of Bella (and one for a friend, too!), grab a box of tissues, and get ready for a true-to-life story where the sadness never overwhelms the joy. And, above all, have your faith in fellow man restored.

91 minute run time.

"Best Movie of the Year, Everyone should see this film"
- Rick Warren, author of bestselling book, 40 Days of Purpose

"Bella is a moving and inspirational movie. In a day of Hollywood's excesses, profanities and foolishness, this sensitive film speaks eloquently of life, love and beauty."
- Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family

    This pro-life movie has so many wonderful themes: friendship, forgiveness, redemption, love, and the value of a strong, loving, intact family. I loved it!

    This was an excellent realistic movie. It shows not only how the slave system was impacted in Europe, but it illustrated the love between two individuals, also it demonstrates the true class system at that time. A strong recommendation to view...

    We saw this movie last night in our Prayermeeting groups. We were all amazed! The story was original, unpredictable and entertaining. It was also quite humorous and something we can all relate to. I'm only 16, and I think its okay for younger viewers. But its definately a mature film!

    mom liked it

    Would you believe I haven't had time to watch it but my mother loved it. It is very difficult to find things that interest her but she will watch a good movie. She not only sat through this one but understood the nuances of the characters and scenes. This amazed me because she is diagnosed with dementia. From my observation of her delight in the movie I would definitely recommend it and I must set some time aside myself to enjoy it. Best Uses: Entertainment; Describe Yourself: Movie Buff; Pros: Engaging, Entertaining
