Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A well-cast, well-intentioned movie that falls into the trap that often awaits film biographies of brave and widely admired individuals. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Mar 27, 2014

Fresh: It should have been made 40 years ago, but this biopic about the Mexican-American leader who spearheaded the fight for farmworkers' rights couldn't be more timely. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Apr 4, 2014

Fresh: Not only powerful but timely, given divided attitudes toward immigration and unionization. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Mar 27, 2014

Rotten: As a filmmaker, Luna is still finding his voice. For all he effectively puts on screen in "Cesar Chavez," Luna never gets past his respect for the accomplishments to give us a true measure of the man. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Mar 27, 2014
