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

“.."Cesar Chavez" so fervently tries to be virtuous that it risks being dull. Dull it certainly is. But how virtuous?..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..enlivened by a strong cast, Cesar Chavez is a straightforward and inspiring account of a noble man..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..it's a clear and moving story, although the messier edges of the man have been smoothed out to fit the screen, and some of the victories may have been exaggerated to provide a happier ending..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
