Chronicling the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez tells the story of the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers. Passionate but soft-spoken, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual's ability to change the world. Written by
Cesar Chavez was a great movie! I highly recommend it for every person concerned with the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Democracy. It shows how one man and a non-violent movement can create social change, and that is true democracy. It was wonderful and inspiring! America Ferrera was brilliant and powerful in this role. I think this has been her best performance to date. Rosario Dawson is strong and smart, a wonderful role for her. I can't even begin to describe the brilliance behind Michael Peña's performance. He truly brought the character to life and was the beacon of light for this movie. I encourage everyone to go see this movie.
