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.

@Director Black, indeed, I did watch '13th' afterwards and it was quite amazing. Too bad 'A Wrinkle in Time' turned out to be bordeline awful though.

2020: Others (340 movies items)

"Bella ricostruzione dei fatti attorno alla marcia di Selma, dall'Alabama a Washington. Un po' di retorica, ma serve ad aggiungere quel tanto di pathos che contribuisce a muovere il racconto. (Curioso però che gli interpreti principali siano quasi tutti inglesi)"
