Ignatius Insight Blog has details of the San Francisco 'Movies for Life' Awards.
I didn't think much of the winners to be honest ; but see for yourself here :
Thought it appropriate for me to re-post this :
Cardinal Justin Rigali, archbishop of Philadelphia, said the film, released today [October 2007] in the United States, "has a message that is so connected to life: to the problems of life, the challenges of life, the value of life." The cardinal wrote to his fellow bishops encouraging them to host advanced screenings of "Bella" with the hope of spreading the film's message.
The film won the 2006 People's Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival.
"Bella" is a story about a young pregnant woman who loses her job, and a man who is unable to recover from a tragic accident in his past. Their friendship changes their lives and brings new hope to both.
The film features actors Eduardo Verástegui, Tammy Blanchard, Manual Pérez and Ali Landry.
The Beauty Within....
Verástegui, a teen heartthrob during his years as a professional musician supermodel and actor, once voted the most beautiful man in the world ; is now known as a Catholic role model. After a spiritual conversion that brought him back to Catholicism, he is now an outspoken defender of the right to life, chastity and his faith. This video will bring you to tears...
