Winner of Toronto International Film Festival "People's Choice Award".

About a Mexican soccer star, a waitress, "a stunning exhibition of cinema art...It is no propaganda film but a dramatic depiction of choices facing an unmarried pregnant woman."

And apparently a major concern to abortion rights people everywhere, according to the uber-liberal Washington Post:
Thus, the antiabortion movement sees "Bella" as providential. It is entertainment, not propaganda. Although Monday's screening [one of hundreds nationwide] was sponsored by the National Council for Adoption, the word "adoption" is uttered only once in the film. There are no tirades against abortion. Indeed, it acknowledges a woman's pain of carrying a baby to term only to give it up for adoption. In the end, however, the film is a heart-wrenching affirmation of life over death.
One minor glitch: the trailer takes awhile to load, chopped the dialogue on my PC anyway and isn't really a "movie" but a "stills-montage" trailer.

I still don't know the full plot, but so far, I'd probably say "Hooray for Hollywood," but of course, Hollywood had absolutely diddly-squat to do with this film getting made or seen.

UPDATE: E! Online calls it "a sweet story about a down-on-his-luck former Mexican soccer player living in New York, who meets a struggling waitress when they both need a friend..."

Imdb doesn't say anything about the plot.
