Chris Weitz‘s A Better Life doesn’t exactly look like a pick-me-up, unless you consider sober blue-collar dramas about life as an immigrant in America to be fun afternoon viewing. Still, you might appreciate the trailer since it might make you feel more thankful for the blessings in your life:

“The film looks at the relationship between illegal immigrant Carlos Galindo (Mexican actor Demián Bichir)  and his teenage son, Luis (José Julián). When Carlos’ truck is stolen, the father is powerless to turn to law enforcement, but the crisis brings him closer to his potentially wayward son.”

That sounds a little bit like the Italian neorealist classic The Bicycle Thieves, but with a truck instead of a bike. Sold! (via 24 Frames)
