Selma is the story of a movement, and a brilliant chronicle of the tumultuous three-month period in 1965 when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (David Oyelowo) 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 DuVernay tells the real story of how a revered leader and visionary, along with his brothers and sisters in the movement, prompted change that forever altered history—proving that one dream can change the world. Also starring Carmen Ejogo, Giovanni Ribisi, Alessandro Nivola, Tim Roth, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Oprah Winfrey. Academy Award winner for Best Original Song ("Glory").
