A Better Life

(Drama) Permanent link

Thanks to the strong acting performance of Oscar nominated actor Demian Bichir, hopefully more film fans will be drawn to the emotionally moving and poignant film A Better Life. The storyline is straight forward and echoes other journey films of immigrant life like El Norte or In America. The narrative centers on the personal struggle of a single father working to keep his son from gravitating toward the allure of gang life while he works toward starting his own landscaping business amidst the constant threat of deportation. A wonderful and affecting film about the love between father and son, A Better Life balances sentimentality with the material realism of today’s immigrant experience.
