Sexton, which focuses on the famed civil rights leader, played by Michael Pena, who co-founded the United Farm Workers.

Passionate but soft-spoken, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual’s ability to change the world.Also starring Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera, Jacob Vargas, Yancey Arias, Wes Bentley, John Ortoz and John Malkovich, the movie opens in limited theaters on March 28th, 2014.
