Film Series: Legendary Figures of Latin America

Ché (Hernesto Guevara)

By Steven Soderbergh

Steven Soderbergh's Ché Guevara stars Benicio Del Toro as the legendary Argentine revolutionary. The film opens with Che as one of the important figures in the growing Cuban rebellion led by Fidel Castro (Demián Bichir). The movie charts how the two successfully built an underground army large enough to successfully overthrow the government of Fulgencio Batista.
