Speaking of bleak-looking films, About a Boy director Chris Weitz has taken a break from doing Golden Compasses and Twilights to return to less vampire/polar bear-driven fare with A Better Life, the tale of an illegal undocumented worker struggling to give his son A BETTER LIFE (title) than his own. It looks like it could be pretty rough. And not just "ut oh, will rich asshole Hugh Grant open up his heart to this moppet?" rough. "Real people problems I generally try not to think about" rough. Wuh oh.
