Bread & roses

Maya is an illegal alien who has crossed the U.S. border from Mexico to search for her sister Rosa, and to begin a new life. After being reunited, Rosa gets Maya a job with a janitorial service in a large office building. While working, Maya happens upon Sam Shapiro, a muckraking lawyer and union agitator whom the service-workers' union has assigned to bring its "justice for janitors" campaign to the building. Appalled at the work conditions and unfair labor practices, Maya and Sam team up to fight her employer.

  • "Maya è una giovane immigrata messicana che cerca fortuna a Los Angeles. Nella città più ricca del mondo troverà lavoro, sottopagato, e un amore appassionato per un giovane sindacalista. Ma la protesta sta per esplodere... i manifestanti vengono arrestati; quando viene il turno di Maya, si scopre che su di lei pesa l'accusa di furto. Pertanto per lei, come clandestina, c'è l'espulsione con pena di arresto nel caso rimetta piede negli USA. Dal pullman che la riporta oltre confine saluta i compagni di quel periodo di lotta."@it

Devenue femme de ménage, Maya se retrouve au milieu d'une armée d'employés de toutes nationalités opérant la nuit dans les buildings de Los Angèles.

  • "(Producer) From acclaimed director Ken Loach comes the gripping story of a group of immigrant workers who take a stand against the million dollar corporations who employ them. Newly arrived illegal immigrant Maya (Pilar Padilla) has just joined her sister on the job as a janitor in a downtown LA office building. Appalled at the work conditions and unfair labor practices, she teams up with Sam (Adrien Brody), a labor organizer, to fight their ruthless employer."

  • "Emigrata clandestina, la messicana Maya trova lavoro (sottopagato) come janitor (addetta alle pulizie) nell'agenzia di Los Angeles in cui lavora la sorella maggiore Rosa. Grazie a un sindacalista, impara a lottare per un salario più equo e l'assistenza sanitaria. (Mymovies)."
  • ""A powerful treatise, Bread And Roses sees Ken Loach take on the City of Angels in his first US-set effort. And those familiar with his earlier pro-Socialist films can probably guess that when Ken comes to LA, shots of Rodeo Drive and Sunset Boulevard will be low on the list. Written, as was Carla's Song and My Name Is Joe by Paul Laverty, Bread And Roses centres around the true-life janitor's strike that hit the city a few years back. Brody plays union organiser Sam, a man who spends his time rallying the troops to protest against the lack of holiday pay and benefits that these workers must endure. He meets illegal immigrant Maya (Padilla), and a touching relationship begins, complicated by the fact that Maya's co-worker Ruben (Chavez) also has feelings for her. The film aims its sights at a number of familiar (and worthy) targets. Corrupt government, big business, immigration law, union fat cats, bureaucracy and the American healthcare and education systems all get a slap in the face. Loach, of course, is armed to the teeth, and itching to pull the trigger, albeit with a grim smile on his face."--Film 4 website."
