Selma (11-Nov-2014)

Director: Ava DuVernay

Writer: Paul Webb

Producers: Christian Colson; Dede Gardner; Jeremy Kleiner; Oprah Winfrey

Keywords: Drama, Civil Rights, Biography

Dr. Martin Luther King campaigns for voting rights by planning a march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Powerful, emotional drama. Some variance from reality, and the events covered are very much viewed in the prism of the present day, but these are quibbles in this excellent production. Received Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Best Original Song, "Glory." Selected AFI Movie of the Year.
