Hubby and I had the opportunity to attend a private screening this weekend. This was my second time to see the film (it gets better every time;). After the viewing, the lead actor/producer Eduardo Verastegui was there for a Q&A session. Eduardo is an amazing person. He is so humble, sincere and so passionate about producing films that inspire people. He left a successful career (he was the Brad Pitt of Latin America), to pursue a dream and his personal mission to make films that make a difference.
This low-budget independent movie was filmed in 27 days. It won the Toronto Film Festival People's Choice Award and is winning the hearts of viewers nationwide. It is beautiful, uplifting, inspiring and wonderful...too much for words.
Please visit http://www.bellathemovie.com/ for a listing of theaters nationwide and support the genuine efforts of the hardworking actors, producers, and directors involved in this film! It deserves to gain nationwide success. All promotion has been due to a grassroots effort. I really pray that it succeeds. We need more films like this!
