The movie is doing quite a bit better than most smaller films not in major release. Many people like "Bella" so much that they're volunteering to promote it by seeing it several times, telling their friends about it, buying multiple tickets and even renting a whole showing at a theater.
There's a danger, though, that the Christmas mass-marketed hit movies could drive "Bella" out of a lot of theaters. So you and I should be promoting "Bella." It's literally a life-saver. You see...
More than a week ago, someone wrote that "Bella" had already caused seven moms to decide against aborting their babies. That was just one figure given, and who knows how many more moms have decided the same thing!
Be sure to read the Times article -- you'll enjoy it -- and also go to the film's web site: www.bellathemovie.com
See you at the movies!
