Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: More often than not ... "Selma" focuses on the one thing we don't expect in a movie about Martin Luther King Jr. - his doubts - and Oyelowo comes through with a deeply felt and quite brilliant performance. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Jan 12, 2015

Fresh: As emotionally and racially charged as the film's story is, director Ava DuVernay is determined to deliver a full-bodied, balanced drama that derives its power from the central fight for understanding and respect. – Jim Schembri, 3AW, Mar 7, 2015

Fresh: Skilfully directed by Ava DuVernay and featuring a wonderful leading performance from David Oyelowo, Selma pulls back the curtain on a riveting piece of U.S. history. – Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane, Feb 23, 2015

Fresh: For all its evasions, short cuts, and mismanaged ideas, Selma can't be dismissed. Its modest achievements engross. – Peter Galvin,, Feb 12, 2015

This is an amazing movie about how Martin Luther King changed the world.

Eye Opening and Life Changing

A film that not only highlights the progression of the movement in Selma but, highlights the many men and women who was active in the implementation of change during the movement. This movie is 1 of the best of its time. It promotes awareness of black history in a clear and very accurate depiction of the black struggle in America during its time period. A powerful, emotionally moving film. If I had an extra thumb I would give the movie 3 thumbs up. A must see movie!!!


I've seen many black history films, but this was by far the best. It showed a very personal light on the good and bad of Selma and the world. It was touching to see humanity stand together and fight together. So many people, not just black people, played a pertinent role in the Civil Rights Movement. A Must See!
