The Cesar Chavez movie trailer is HERE & I cannot wait to see the movie!
I'll tell you what: As the mother of two littles, I hardly ever go to the movies anymore. I wait at home until I can stream it, but there is one movie coming out on April 4, 2014 that I am ABSOLUTELY going to see at the movie theater. That movie is a film directed by Diego Luna about César Chávez and I am going to line up and pay full price for that movie because I want it to be successful, I want it to make money so that important stories like this keep being shared on the big screen. I am so thrilled that this story is being told to what will hopefully be a very large audience. The trailer for Cesar Chavez: An American Hero was just released and it is making my heart swell with pride.

The cast features Michael Peña as Cesar Chávez, America Ferrera as his wife, Helen Chávez, and Rosario Dawson as Dolores Huerta. The trailer to the biopic looks good and I'm excited to see the upcoming movie.
There is a part in the trailer where a character played by John Malkovich (LOVE HIM) asks, "Who the hell is this César Chávez?" I'm hoping that what this movie does for many people is answer that question. César Chávez's contributions are important and all Americans deserve to know this story.
I live in a city with a street named after César Chávez and I remember what a HUGE deal it was when the street which used to be named "Army" was renamed. Some people were ANGRY and I think it's because they really didn't know the answer to that question, "Who the hell is César Chávez?"
Watch the trailer below and be proud!
