The lefty movie reviewers at Rotten Tomatoes really appreciated this tug-at-your-heartstrings film which features a caring, hardworking papi who drives without a license and works without a green card. One critic said of A Better Life, "Personalizes the illegal immigrant experience and digs much deeper into what has become a national disgrace." One wonders what Ray Tranchant, a law-abiding father whose story doesn't rate a Hollywood film, would say to that.
Prediction: Will garner, at least, one Oscar nomination. Bah.
