Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
It's generic and small but manages to reel you in and surprise you with its grimness.Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, 07.14.2011
"A Better Life" might not change any minds about immigration policy, but it illuminates the conversation with context, compassion and understanding.Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 07.14.2011
The film's trajectory is rather predictable, but then so was the story told by "The Bicycle Thief." But the performances are pitch perfect...Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 07.07.2011
