A very good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, it has been a while since I have seen such an heartbreaking picture. Indeed, like everyone else, I do believe that Martin Luther King was one of the most inspiring human beings that ever lived and this movie was a great reminder on how difficult and sad his fight was. In fact, I thought the mes... read more

I watched this in a promo screening at my theater and the diversity of the people watching it next to each other was amazing. I think Martin Luther King Jr. made it possible to be able to do that and he would have been proud to see such a thing if he were still around. This was such a powerful movie. It's inspiring and intense. There are several moments where I found myself shaking my head in disg... read more

BAM, that was quite an opening! This is definitely worth watching: directing, performance, costume, sets, etc. I'm not old enough to know much on or about Martin Luther King so unsure on accuracy (hence the rating), Yet this remains an eye opener, as I suspect it'll be for most viewers.

"Jan 18th A very good historical drama that shows aspect’s of King’s life that are differing from the saintly image he is often cloaked in. Even leaders are human and this film does a good job of showing King’s weakness as well as his strengths. David Oyelowo plays a very good leading role as Dr. King especially in his delivery of rousing speeches as well as in the more quiet moments with his wife or close advisors. In supporting roles Tom Wilkinson, Stephan James and Tim Roth who play L"

I'm glad you liked it. It's definitely one of best biopics to come out. If you have time, you should check out Ava DuVerany's documentary 13th on Netflix. If Selma showed her to be a promising filmma

A very good movie

“Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, it has been a while since I have seen such an heartbreaking picture. Indeed, like everyone else, I do believe that Martin Luther King was one of the most inspiring human beings that ever lived and this movie was a great reminder on how difficult and sad his fight was. In fact, I thought the message delivered by this movie was now even stronger following the recent disaster represented by the victory of Donald Trump at the presidential election. Indeed, the main reason the guy actually won was because so many people didn't even bother give their votes and it is just infuriating when you think how hard some people, not only King but all the people supporting his movement, fought so that e” read more
