Selma (2014)

"Selma," as in Alabama, the place where segregation in the South was at its worst, leading to a march that ended in violence, forcing a famous statement by President Lyndon B. Johnson that ultimately led to the signing of the Voting Rights Act.

A film full of great performances and surprisingly refreshing drama. Highly recommended. It shone a light on events that need more recognition.

The "Academy" should be ashamed that they didn't give this film the recognition it deserves. A must see film. As a 28 year old Southern, white male that was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, AL, I was truly moved by this film. It angered me, saddened me, embarrassed me for those that came before me, but, ultimately, inspired me beyond measure.
