SELMA Directed by AVA DUVERNAY United States, United Kingdom, 2014 Biography, Drama 128 Mins English
The powerful story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic struggle to secure voting rights for all people—a dangerous and terrifying campaign that culminated with the epic march from the small city of Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, and led to President Johnson signing the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
'Ava DuVernay’s Selma is a passionate movie, commanding and compelling...Selma takes its place alongside recent pictures such as Spielberg’s Lincoln and McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave as a film that honourably tackles race, so often the amoeba-sized elephant in Hollywood’s colossal Wasp living room. This it does from a position of strength, as well as idealism and optimism.' Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
