    ITEM#: 13823109

    ABOUT A BOY director Chris Weitz takes the helm for this affecting drama about an illegal immigrant who struggles to give his teenage son a better life by working as a gardener in L.A. Determined to move out of the city in order to get his son away from gangs and into a decent school, the devoted father comes into possession of a truck that allows him to earn a better income by taking more gardening jobs. But with immigration agents on every corner and vicious gangsters trying to lure his son into a life of crime, it's a constant struggle just to survive in such an unforgiving city without being deported. Demian Bichir, Jose Julian, and Dolores Heredia star in a film written by Eric Eason (JOURNEY TO THE END OF THE NIGHT).

    • A real slice of life

      This movie is a great little slice of life film about the hardships most families never have to think about. I loved the relationship the father and son have and what that blossoms into by the end of the film. I do admit the story gets a little heavy handed and preachy in the third act. But Demian Bichir Oscar nominated performance is so good, you are able to overlook that.
