In 2007, a small movie created big buzz when Bella opened in limited theaters across the United States with little known actors Eduardo Verástegui and Tammy Blanchard. The independent film with a huge heart moved audiences as it portrayed the lives of Jose and Nina, two working class New Yorkers, slaving away at the same restaurant and both struggling with their secrets. Bella is a powerful story with an unlikely ending that makes it all the more precious and rare. It's about moving on from the past and embracing a future that wasn't part of the plan.
