Under the Same Moon

In this simplified, overly sentimental look at immigration, a cute 'n' precocious kid named Carlitos (Adrian Alonso) leaves his hometown in Mexico on a quest to find his long-absent mom, slaving away as an undocumented worker in Los Angeles. Along the way, Carlitos meets lots of poor, saintly Mexicans and lots of rich, heartless Americans. The filmmakers at least know to concentrate on the emotional elements, turning this into a crowd-pleasing Hallmark movie by way of Telemundo. In English and Spanish with English subtitles. 110 minutes PG-13.
