Selma delivers. Yes, it does. From the opening scene involving four black girls in a church in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963, to the end after a successful third try of a historic civil rights march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, to the state capital in March 1965.
Let's be clear. Although the film Selma is unflinchingly searing in key dramatic scenes, it also sings with a diverse ensemble of talented acting. And this also makes it soar.
