Cesar Chavez

What better day to watch “Cesar Chavez” than on Cesar Chavez Day?

This well-made and well-acted biopic recounts the period in which Chavez led the labor organization of farm workers, centered around Delano, CA, including the march to Sacramento. It ably demonstrates the scope of the struggle, on national and international stages, as well as the very personal sacrifices that led to changes in the laws that protect some of the poorest and hardest working people in the country.

“Cesar Chavez” is rated PG-13 for “some violence and language.” For your convenience, here are Sacramento’s showtimes (according to Fandango.com) for Monday, March 31st:
