Movie Review: Selma

This was a good movie in that it showed an important moment in history that perhaps many people never fully understood or know about. This movie depicts man’s humanity to man and the inhumanity doled out to black people in the 60’s, not even allowing them to vote in the South even though they had the legal right to vote was an outrage. The acting in this movie was very good, especially the acting of the actor who played Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. There are a few small scenes with Oprah Winfrey but she hardly had any speaking lines in the whole movie.

The downside of this movie is that it was very slow at times and at times the story did skip around too much. Overall this movie was good, not great and will definitely receive an Academy Award nomination.

I do recommend this movie.
