A Better Life

This 2011 effort is the first benefit screening in the New Mexico Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice. Chris Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy, The Golden Compass, The Twilight Saga: New Moon) further confuses his eclectic resume with this sincere drama about an undocumented Mexican gardener in East L.A. (nasty Demián Bichir from "Weeds" going all soft on us) who scours the city with his son, desperately trying to reclaim his stolen pickup truck. Simple and compassionate, the film puts a powerful, modern-day spin on Vittorio De Sica's neo-realist classic Bicycle Thieves. 98 minutes PG-13.
