Cesar Chavez Drama

The poster for 'Cesar Chavez'.

Directed by Diego Luna, Chávez 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.

HitFix Reviews and Ratings

  • C-
    Diego Luna spent years trying to get his biopic about Cesar Chavez made, and while the ambition is evident, 'Cesar Chavez' turns out to be an overly reverent bore that illuminates nothing while never finding a way to turn the story into drama.
