2014 Best Acting Ensemble Winner

Selma

1-11-2015Selma

There’s a reason why this film is called Selma and not Martin Luther King.  It’s a film that is more about a broader movement (and counter-movement) than it is about any one person.  To convey this Ava DuVernay assembled a large group of capable actors who can hold their own when in a room with David Oyelowo when he’s in full-on Martin Luther King mode.  Almost all of the actors she’s assembled do a great job of bringing these various historical figures to life but rarely distract from the movie with their presence.
