‘Pro-life’ goes ‘Pop Culture’
‘Bella’ is a movie. It won the People’s Choice award at the Toronto Film Festival, a ‘feeder’ for Oscars. It also embraces the pro-life side of unintended pregnancy (regardless of what Roger Ebert says, but he likes it anyway). I’m hoping that it achieves popular success and intend to find a theater that’s showing it (very limited release) and view it soon. So far the only metro area theater showing it is the Regal Eagan 16, and not until November 9th. Help me give this film some word of mouth.
The review at Inside Catholic makes an interesting point…this is not the first pro-life movie. Other recent such releases include Knocked Up, Waitress, and Children of God. An interesting development that I might explore…after I see the movie.
