With the success of the Veronica Mars movie via Kickstarter, is an Ugly Betty big-screen movie next? Cesar Chavez star America Ferrera answers our pressing question, and explains why a movie about legendary activist Chavez is more timely than ever. Watch the video!
In theaters Friday, Cesar Chavez is directed by Diego Luna and stars Michael Peña in the title role, with America Ferrera as his devoted wife (and mother of multiple children!) who urged him to fight for civil rights. Torn between his duties as a family man and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in the name of social justice. Rosario Dawson and John Malkovich co-star.
