PG-13 | | Biography, Drama, History
A chronicle of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s campaign to secure equal voting rights via an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965.
The screenplay was featured in the 2007 Blacklist, a list of the "most liked" unmade scripts of the year.
President Lyndon B. Johnson:
Either King stops or Wallace stops or I'll stop them both!
President Johnson is shown giving the voting rights speech in front of what appears to be the the Senate (individual desks shown) with the Speaker of the House and the Vice President behind him. This speech was given properly in front of the joint session in the House chamber (which has just seats rather than desks). The room depicted isn't correct for the Senate chamber either. Neither chamber has windows as shown.
The initial credits are shown over stills from the film and from promotional materials.
