"Selma," as in Alabama, the place where segregation in the South was at its worst, leading to a march that ended in violence, forcing a famous statement by President Lyndon B. Johnson that ultimately led to the signing of the Civil Rights Act.
Cinema is full of great stories; uplifting, powerful, moving and proactive. For the exploits of Martin Luther King Jr. you’d expect there to have already been an Oscar hoarding epic. You would be wrong.
