I went to see "A Better Life"

I went to see "A Better Life" today. It doesn't star anyone famous, it just watches what happens to a Hispanic gardener and his (naturalised) son as they live in California.

The father makes his break for the better life (buying his boss's gardening business), only to have his van stolen. The son, who's at that awkward age where they "want to break free" (and might slip into gang life if he isn't too careful) isn't sure when to be embarrassed or angry at his Dad for the loss. They then "go on a mission" to get the van back

It's not bad, but I'm not sure it doesn't tell us something most "socially conscious" people don't already know.
