British star David Oyelowo embodies an American icon as civil rights leader Martin Luther King in this stirring account of the events surrounding the historic march for voting rights that began in Selma, Alabama in 1965. Facing a regime that prevents the majority of black people from exercising their lawful right to vote, Dr King urges all his fellow Americans to take non-violent action. But the opposition is brutal. Brilliantly played and frighteningly relevant, Selma presents a compelling chronicle of an era that is less bygone than it should be.

    Paris-trained painter Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) became the kitsch toast of American commercial art with his enigmatic paintings of disc-eyed waifs. However, the bizarre truth was that it was his put-upon wife Margaret (Amy Adams) who was actually doing the work.
