How Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. hasn’t already had his life immortalized in a feature film is hard to fathom. Thankfully, director Ava DuVernay brings to the screen a very specific chapter in the life of one of history’s greatest men.
Selma takes place during King’s 1965 campaign for equal voting rights and his march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. The Unusual Suspects gather to lend their thoughts on the film, as well as on David Oyelowo’s performance as Dr. King. Spoiler alert: David Oyelowo turns in a fantastic performance as Dr. King. J.C., Brian, Elliott, Chris, and Beau appear on this Highly Suspect Review for one highly important piece of social cinema.
