What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Cesar Chavez is based on the life of the famed civil rights activist and labor organizer Cesar Chavez , who started working in the fields at 11 and grew up watching the injustices inflicted on farm laborers. Expect some scenes of intense, realistic violence (e.g. characters are beaten with rifles) as farmers and police attack groups of unarmed protesters. Occasional language is strong and includes several uses of "f--k," and "s--t." Though the movie isn't a winner, the characters of Chavez and his partner Dolores Huerta make for outstanding role models who have inspired folks to fight for social justice using nonviolent means.?
