"Selma"

I watched this film on Blu-ray and I really enjoyed it. It is about the 1964 civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, led by Martin Luther King. Even though we know how this ends, this a good drama that is well told. The performances by David Oyelowo (as MLK) and Carmen Ejogo (his wife, Coretta) also show great insight into the effect of being a leading light of the civil rights movement had on the Kings family life. Also great performances from Tom Wilkinson (as President LBJ) and Tim Roth (Gov George Wallace)

(Usually, at this point I include a copy of the poster for the film, however, yesterday I uploaded Windows 10 and today the upload pictures function on Blogger is not working. This could be coincidence...maybe...)
