animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook

a better life

This was a good movie. It told the story of an illegal immigrant (played by the awesome Demian Bichir from Weeds) and his struggle for his son to have–wait for it–a better life. There wasn’t a whole lot going on in the story so I don’t want to give anything away by mentioning any of the plot points. But, if you like a good character study, this will do.
