Cesar Chavez was a great movie!, 28 March 2014
Author: czamora519 from New Mexico

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.
