We have an exclusive featurette for the Academy Award nominated drama Biutiful, which will expand to theaters nationwide today, January 28. Click on the video player below to hear from director Alejandro González Iñárritu, who takes us deeper inside this movie, which stars Javier Bardem in an Oscar-nominated performance:

Biutiful is a love story between a father and his children. This is the journey of Uxbal, a conflicted man who struggles to reconcile fatherhood, love, spirituality, crime, guilt and mortality amidst the dangerous underworld of modern Barcelona. His livelihood is earned out of bounds, his sacrifices for his children know no bounds. Like life itself, this is a circular tale that ends where it begins. As fate encircles him and thresholds are crossed, a dim, redemptive road brightens, illuminating the inheritances bestowed from father to child, and the paternal guiding hand that navigates life's corridors, whether bright, bad - or biutiful.
