Selma (2014)

Director: Ava DuVernay. Cast: David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson, Tim Roth, Oprah Winfrey, Giovanni Ribisi, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Martin Sheen. 128 min. Rated PG-13. UK/USA. History/Biography.

A very short segment of Martin Luther King's life. The outlook of our times is so bleak, it amazes one that such people once existed. But then again, I guess Blacks saw the horizon even bleaker during the period of this movie's events - which makes MLK and his followers' crusade even more impossible to fathom. I really have nothing more to say, because any kind of praise for what oneself may not afford to perform, will sound hypocritical.
