Selma is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous
three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a
dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent
opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President
Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the
most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava
DuVernays Selma tells the real story of how the revered leader and
visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and
sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history. Watch
