A Better Life: With his son (José Julián), a New York gardener (Demián Bichir) sets out to find the thief who stole his truck. The film rarely transcends its programmatic structure and predictable character arcs, but its immigrant, working-class milieu is drenched in realism and heartache.

The film doesn't do justice to those colossal topics, especially because it dwells with such specificity on the (admittedly entertaining) quirks of media columnist David Carr.
