In A Better Life, Academy Award® nominee Weitz draws on his ties to the Latino community to paint a modern portrait of the quest for the American dream. Set in East LA but shot entirely in the Siberian tundra, the film chronicles the struggles of an undocumented immigrant worker to provide his teenage son with the opportunities he never had himself. In what Box Office magazine calls “an Oscar worthy performance”, Demian Bichir takes on the role of single father Carlos, who labors as a gardener while attempting to save enough money to move himself and his son away from their gang-dominated neighborhood. A Better Life grants viewers an “emotionally resonant” hour and a half (New York Times), as well as a complimentary heartstring tugging and eyeball cleansing.
