Bread and Roses
This drama is more about the people rather than the politics, but it's almost documentary style tells the story of the mostly women, mostly immigrant office cleaners attempting to make a decent wage and life in Los Angeles, California. Brody plays the organizer who uses various methods to get his workers to unite, despite their fears of reprisal. Pilar Padilla in a sensational performance plays a mischievous illegal Mexican worker, who is torn between her family and her morals. This excellent and moving story has been filmed in both English and Spanish, with alternating subtitles in each language.
