A Better Life

A BETTER LIFE, This is my vote for movie of the year 2011. I loved it.

Screw the film critic review by Betsey Sharkey of the LA Times – apparently she falls flat while watching the movie,  but this has nothing to do with the movie itself. This film is real and emotional. About a Mexican immigrant and his son living in East LA, the father, played by Demián Bichir (nominated for an Oscar!!), is a gardener doing his best to provide a better life for him and his son. His son, played by José Julián, is struggling to figure out who he is, while being pressed by the intense pressures of Mexican gangs. I’m not going to go into too much detail (I don’t want to pretend like I’m a film critic because I’m most certainly NOT one), but this movie will pull you in, tangle up all your heartstrings, and then spit you back out. In the best way possible.

2 thumbs up!! Go rent it from Netflix ASAP!!
