Synopsis SELMA is a necessary film, even an essential one, with more than its share of memorable performances and vivid, compelling sequences.At its most interesting, SELMA gets into the nitty-gritty of organized action, making audiences privy to sometimes heated backroom discussions. -- Grade: B[R]arely has a movie so perfectly captured a specific, historic and crucial stretch of time.3.5 stars out of 4 -- DuVernay, working from a terrific, tightly focused script by Paul Webb, blows the dust off history to find its beating heart.4 stars out of 4 -- As King, David Oyelowo is a revelation....He channels the essence of his character rather than a dead-on visual interpretation.Packed with incident and overflowing with fascinating characters, it is a triumph of efficient, emphatic cinematic storytelling.DuVernay has done a great service with Selma. Not only has she made one of the most powerful films of the year, she's given us a necessary reminder of what King did for this country...and how much is left to be done. -- Grade: AWith SELMA, director Ava DuVernay has created a stirring, often thrilling, uncannily timely drama that works on several levels at once.Throughout, DuVernay composes with a clean, classical style...she films the many scenes of crowd violence with an unflinching eye.4 stars out of 5 -- A daunting challenge for any actor, Oyelowo rises to the task, in a film that eschews the traditional biopic approach....This is a hugely impressive achievement.The supporting actors bring oomph to their small roles and are dead ringers for their historical counterparts.David Oyelowo stars as Martin Luther King Jr. in this historical drama set during the height of the American civil-rights movement, and depicting the marches from Selma, AL, to the state capital of Montgomery to secure voting rights for black people. Brad Pitt and Oprah Winfrey produce and Ava DuVernay (I WILL FOLLOW, MIDDLE OF NOWHERE) directs.
