Bella is a beautiful film about Nina, a waitress in New York City who finds out she's pregnant, and Jose, the head chef of the restaurant where she works, who walks out on his job to help her figure out what she's going to do. He has a surprising and disturbing past, but also a bunch of wonderful Latino family members who help Nina see that life can be different from what she's experienced. The story is a tiny bit confusing, but it's really a great movie that deserves to be seen by a lot of people. If you have a chance to see it in a theater, please do!
