Selma follows the 1965 voting rights marches from Selma to Montgomery. Advanced word on this film is pretty amazing, saying it's one of the most inspirational depictions of MLK onscreen in history. That is especially impressive since the film wasn't actually allowed to use any of MLK's actual speeches since Steven Spielberg owns the rights to them. Let the irony soak in for awhile and then we'll talk later.
Selma is not showing in any theaters in the area.
