Selma - A Right To Vote

Selma is a historical film directed by Ava DuVernay 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights marches led by James Bevel, Hosea Williams, Jr. John Lewis and Martin Luther King. Even after the Civil Rights Act of 1965 there was rampant discrimination against African American in certain areas making it difficult for them to register to vote. This movie is amout Dr. Martin Luther King’s and his followers’ epic march of Selma to Montgomery and their efforts to get President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

I was always fascinated by Martin Luther King’s personality and this movie tells one of his historical event and it really well made in terms of the era and protest they shown. David Oyelowo convinces you as Martin Luther King and not to miss Tom Wilkinson as President. It is informative as well as entertaining and deserve to be nominated as Best Picture in Osacr, a must watch.
