Ava DuVernay’s breakout film stars a brilliant David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King Jr.
Dir Ava DuVernay
With David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tim Roth, Oprah Winfrey
Ava DuVernay’s breakout film is the first major feature centered on Dr Martin Luther King Jr (Oyelowo) and his campaign for equal voting rights, a campaign that culminated in an epic march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965. DuVernay’s close collaborator David Oyelowo carries the film with a towering, unforgettable performance.
