Cesar Chavez Diego Luna’s portrait of the charismatic leader of the United Farm Workers checks off some of his accomplishments but captures none of the passion that inspired a powerless group to overcome the powers that be. With its listless narrative and bland performances it is not likely to stimulate similar commitment today, at a time when it’s needed most. In English and Spanish, with subtitles. (101 min., PG-13) (Peter Keough)
