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. 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.
Directed by Oscar nominee Ava DuVernay (13th) and written by Paul Webb, the movie stars David Oyelowo, Tom Wilkinson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Alessandro Nivola, Giovanni Ribisi Common, Carmen Ejogo, Lorraine Toussaint, with Tim Roth, and Oprah Winfrey as “Annie Lee Cooper.”
The 2014 docudrama was Oscar-nominated for Best Motion Picture of the Year and received the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Original Song, “Glory,” by Common and John Legend.
Selma is available now on Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD.
