This week's Parish Media Liason Post

Make the Connection...using new media to strengthen your connection to faith!

This week my pick is a movie!
Grab someone you love, some popcorn and watch this great film!

Last year a new film company called Metanoia Films, filled with the desire to create movies that make a positive difference, released it's first film: Bella. It quickly gained numerous, prestigious awards such as the People's Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival, Best Film and Best Actor from the 2008 MovieGuide Awards and a distinctive honor from The Smithsonian Institute. This week it was released on DVD.

Recently, Eduardo Verastegui, the actor who plays Jose an international soccer star in the movie, was interviewed on the Today show. You can still see this interview at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y04HMaC5kT0

Check out the trailers at http://www.bellathemovie.com/ or buy the movie and enjoy! It is PG 13. There is no profane language, gratuitous violence or inappropriate relationships just some serious subjects. My 14 year old and I HIGHLY recommend it!

If you have questions or suggestions for"Make the Connection", feel free to contact me!
Peace of Christ to you!
