Bella, The Movie

MY WIFE AND I RECENTLY HAD THE UNUSUAL opportunity to preview the movie Bella, which will open in theaters later this month. It is the story of a hot-shot world soccer player who through a tragic event has lost everything.

Mexican heartthrob Eduardo Verastegui is the ex-soccer player, now working as a cook in his brother's Mexican restaurant. After losing all, he finds redemption offering unconditional friendship to the young waitress his brother had just fired. Tammy Blanchard is the waitress who suddenly finds herself without a job at the most critical time of her life. It is a story about friendship, faith, and unconditional love.

I don't normally do movie reviews, but this one is a must-see. The winner of the Toronto Film Festival, the Heartland Film Festival, the Legacy Award by the Smithsonian Latino Center, and White House Honors from First Lady Laura Bush, Bella opens in theaters October 26.
