"Cesar Chavez" chronicles the birth of a modern American movement led by famed civil rights leaderand labor organizer, Cesar Chavez. Torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to bringing dignity and justice to others, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle for the rights of farm workers. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual's ability to change the system.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the result, while inspirational, falls into the category of a conventional account of a great man. Cesar Chavez hits all the right notes but never attempts anything rash, daring, or extraordinary..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..yet it's Pena's quietly powerful interpretation of Cesar Chavez the man that makes this movie work so well..”
by Bill Zwecker [Chicago Sun-Times]
“..useful as a crash course in Chavez's main achievements, but this is the simplified version of a complicated and sometimes controversial story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
