Dir. Ava DuVernay. 2014, 123 mins. DCP. With David Oyelowo, Tom Wilkinson, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Carmen Ojogo. In this stirring and intimate drama that is destined to stand the test of time, director Ava DuVernay moves effortlessly between intimate drama and historical epic to dramatize Martin Luther King, Jr.’s leadership of the marches from Selma to Montgomery and the crescendo of the civil rights movement. At the center of the film is a powerful and complex performance by David Oyelowo as King.
