Cesar Chavez: An American Hero (March 28)

Target Age: Teens

Buzz Factor: This historical drama is a biopic of Mexican farm-worker-turned-labor-leader Cesar Chavez, who helped organize the oppressed (mostly Mexican) farmworkers in the 1960s. Directed by Mexican actor-producer Diego Luna (MilkElysium), the movie chronicles how Chavez (played by Miguel Peńa), along with his wife Helen (America Ferrera) and fellow community organizer Dolores Huerta (Rosario Dawson), turned the plight of Mexican migrant workers into an internationally recognized civil rights movement. Because of the historical subject matter, the film should be educational but likely will include violence.
