“Selma”

“Selma”

Release Date: January 9, 2015

A very slow moving movie that does not quite pack a punch that I was expecting. Just turn on the actual Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech if you want to feel inspired. Nothing is memorable in this movie that a history book had not already gone over in detail.

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars.
