Bread And Roses

Wednesday, June 10 on F4

Two Latina sisters working as cleaners in a Los Angeles office complex fight for the right to unionise in Ken Loach’s powerful political drama. Pilar Padilla stars as Maya, a quick-witted illegal immigrant who leaves Mexico to join up with her older sister Rosa (Elpidia Carrillo) in LA. Rosa gets Maya a job as a janitor in a non-unionised company, where the mistreatment of cleaners by their employers brings Maya into contact with militant union activist Sam (Adrien Brody).
