Instructions Not Included (2013)
The story goes that an Acapulco playboy has a ten month old baby dropped in his lap by her mother. He has not intention of taking care of her, but on the journey to the United States he falls in love with her, so that when he can't find the mother, he gets a job that will allow them to live comfortably. He cares very much for her, and over time he is mostly a good parent to her as well. The mostly part is that he is more of a friend than a parent who manages the rules. then the mother comes back into their lives and their happy equilibrium is permanently disrupted. Lots to think about, and enjoyable.
