A Better Life
Vic Skolnick SUNDAY SCHMOOZE  Brunch, Film, and Discussion
Bagel Brunch at 10am  Film at 11am
Followed by Discussion with Fred Craden

Join Sunday Schmooze host Fred Craden for a screening and discussion of director Chris Weitz's (About a Boy) moving tale of a gardener in East L.A. struggling to keep his son away from gangs and immigration agents while trying to give his son the opportunities he never had

From the director of About a Boy comes A Better Life - a touching, poignant, multi-generational story about a father's love and the lengths a parent will go to give his child the opportunities he never had. A Better Life looks at the relationship between undocumented immigrant Carlos Galindo (Academy-Award nominee Demián Bichir, Savages, Che, TV's Weeds) and his teenage son, Luis (José Julián). The single father struggles to keep his son away from pervasive gang culture. 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. Beginning with a simple, fragile view of immigrant life, the film blossoms into a complex demonstration of what it takes to survive in this modern world. (USA, 2011, 98 min., color  Director: Chris Weitz  Writer: Eric Eason, based on a story by Roger L. Simon  Cast: Demián Bichir, Jose Julian, Chelsea Rendon, Joaquín Cosío, Dolores Heredia, Carlos Linares, Nancy Lenehan, Tim Griffin, Bobby Soto)
