'Cesar Chavez': The biopic is a little too dutiful
'Cesar Chavez' stars Michael Peña as the civil rights icon.
Remarkably, this is the first dramatic feature about Chavez. It dutifully chronicles the 1960s grape strike and boycott he spearheaded in Delano, Calif., but, as Chavez, Michael Peña, who was so powerful in “End of Watch,” is a blank. It’s not easy playing an icon. Grade: C (Rated PG-13 for some violence and language.)
