A movie called “A Better Life’’ could almost only be about immigrants. It’s generic and small but manages to reel you in and surprise you with its grimness. To get there, a few too many coincidences provoke too much unearned emotion (whence so many tears?). But as movies go about East Los Angelenos stealing back their stuff, this one is sincere.
