Nutter Jr's rating of the film A Better Life

I chose to watch it due to the Oscar nomination of the protagonist and indeed I saw a very powerful performance of this stoic and dignified Mexican immigrant in the USA trying to provide a better life for his son. However, outside this noteable performance the film is both predictable and full of clichés and thus will quickly be forgotten.
