Martin Luther King is well known as one of America's greatest advocates of civil rights for black Americans and this absorbing drama focuses on the 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights marches and the events leading up to this historic moment in American history. After accepting his Nobel Peace Prize, four black girls in Alabama are killed by a bomb set by the Ku Klux Klan, setting off a chain of events that lead to a rising up of black Americans against racial injustice. As Dr King readies himself to lead the forthcoming rallies, he must deal with the US government as well as his own weakness and doubts. Complex and moving, this is a film which explores, in depth, the intricacies of leadership and the wider civil rights movement in America.
