Here’s more info on the film:

Rated Parental Guidance (Violence, Language May Offend, Mature Theme) ~ Runs 128 minutes

Dir.: Ava DuVernay, US, 2014

David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson

“Selma traces key moments in the movement for black voting rights in 60s America and comes at a time when recent racist killings have galvanized activism all over the U.S. But Selma would be a powerful film even without its current political resonance. It’s anchored by the superb performance of David Oyelowo, who makes believable iconic leader Martin Luther King Jr.’s faith, his passion – and his doubts. Screenwriter Paul Webb wisely adopts the strategy of the film Lincoln, focusing on a specific campaign within the civil rights movement and probing all its complicated machinations. Director DuVernay ups her game in a big way, showing skill with both the massive set pieces and the intimate detail she’s better known for. Listen to Common’s track over the final credits. This movie is continuing a conversation that America cannot ignore.” – Susan G. Cole, Now
