Is Bella too vague on the pro-life meter? Can it too easily be interpreted as a movie that supports a woman's "right to choose"? Those are serious questions for a movie that was written and is being promoted by ardent Catholics. That some "pro-choice" voices see the movie as supporting a woman's "choice" indicates that a bit of work may be needed to bring about the director's intention of fostering a culture of life mentality.
One thing I find especially interesting in the feedback from the pro-choice side is that they see the movie as "supporting a woman in her choice." This tells me that they do not realize that pro-lifers could support a woman without at the same time approving her "choice." To them, Jose's willingness to "be there" for Nina signals his approval or support of her decision: they cannot see it as a sign of human, brotherly care for the person. See? There is a certain expectation that a pro-life movie would portray rejection, dismissal and condemnation of the woman as a person.
We have work to do.
