Selma

February 24, 2015 @ 8:15 pm

Ava DuVernay brings her strength as a documentarian to this powerful Oscar-nominated dramatisation of America’s Civil Rights movement.

Opening with Martin Luther King (an impressively convincing Oyelowo, THE BUTLER) collecting his Nobel Peace Prize, the film swiftly moves to the bombing of an Alabama church and the dignified attempts of a local resident (co-producer Oprah Winfrey) to register to vote.

As its title suggests, SELMA focuses on the city that King chose as pivotal to his efforts to persuade President Johnson (Wilkinson) to grant voting rights for all, a battle that proved bitter and often bloody.

Carmen Ejogo as King’s equally determined wife Coretta Scott King, Tim Roth as racist governor George Wallace, and Cuba Gooding Jnr shine amongst an extensive, well-drawn cast of characters.
