Synopsis: A chronicle of MLK's campaign to secure equal voting rights via an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965.
Review: Selma succeeds as a beautiful portrait of progress and triumph as well as a stark reminder of the sacrifices that were made to obtain basic human rights. Ava DuVernay's skillfully captures a rare, intimate and vulnerable glimpse into the life of the towering figure known Martin Luther King, rousingly portrayed by David Oyelowo. Bravo! (A)
