Before or After?

For my next Catholic Company review, I chose to read the book about the stories behind the movie Bella.

But, although I know the movie's premise, I have yet to watch it.

Note to self: subject for another post---how to squeeze in watching a feature length film when the oldest kid heads to bed at nine and you can't make it up past 10...

So, to those of you who have seen it...do I pull an all-nighter and try to see the movie first, or should I just go ahead and read the book before the movie?

I'd read the book. It might make the film a little more interesting. Personally, the film dragged on and on for me. Of course, I'm glad the baby was allowed to live, but the story was kind of jumbled. I didn't "get" parts of it. Oh, well.

I think one of my co-teachers owns that movie. Maybe I'll borrow it and watch it during break.
Thanks for the idea.

Watch the movie -- I think you'll be able to stay awake. Or watch it over two nights. ;-)

Oh, it's such a beautiful movie, you have to make time to see it! It's on the artsy side, more "film" than "movie". I LOVED it!!!
