Bella: Unexpected and Powerful

My wife brought home this little movie the other night, and it sat on our dresser for a few days. Finally popped it in last night- and what a whollop this little flick makes! Great movie. Very moving performances by a cast I had never heard of, produced and directed by names that were new for me.

Tammy Blanchard plays a woman in despair who is befriended by a chef in the restaurant in which she works. The story revolves around these two characters and how their growing friendship impacts and heals the wounds of their pasts. Looking for a film that will touch your heart? Bella is it- and it is the kind of film Disney should be making for mature audiences.
