Bella- The Review

Imagine my surprise while reading the morning paper with my cup of coffee on Friday morning when I saw Bella was being shown in Decatur! I thought for sure we would see it in Austin when we visit in a couple of weeks...but we had a date night Saturday night instead!

The movie has beautiful cinematography and some delightful symbolism. This relatively simple, yet profound story will stay with you for a very long time. It's about life: family, friendship, sacrifice and what is truly important in life... love.

Jose', played by Eduardo Verastequi (the next Antonio Banderas?) is a chef in a Latino restaurant, so of course we had to end our night with my favorite, enchilada verdes with lots of cilantro and a margarita! The end to a perfect evening!
