54) A Better Life (2011)
A gardener in East L.A. struggles to keep his son away from gangs and immigration agents while trying to give his son the opportunities he never had.
7/10 – A touching father-son story caught in the midst of gangland LA, sensitively highlighting a section of the immigrant situation in the USA. It was authentic, at times heartbreaking to watch, but it was somewhat predictable and cliched. The saving grace of this film was Demian Bichir’s performance, which was flawless throughout.
