Selma is about the historic struggle of Dr Martin Luther King Jr (David Oyelowo) to secure voting rights for African American people.  
His dangerous and terrifying campaign culminated in the epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama that galvanised American public opinion and persuaded President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) to introduce the Voting Rights Act in 1965.  
With Selma, Ava DuVernay became the first African American woman director to have a film nominated for the Best Picture Oscar. 
Ava DuVernay's Selma is a beautifully observed drama of public and private lives, of personal narratives and historic moments’ – The Sydney Morning Herald
