Selma was a pretty solid movie.
If I understand right, they couldn't get the rights to MLK's major speeches, so they had to make them up. It's weird. But it's still pretty darn good.
Apparently the narrative film rights to his (major) speeches are owned by a single filmmaker/company.
I think I got this right but I'm not sure.
That's really too bad. Growing up where I did, I never really got much from simply hearing the speech in school. It's a bit of a read but here's an interesting article about my state's racist history, one that everybody likes to pretend didn't exist:
as such I didn't really understand the man by simply memorizing a speech and doing a report on him in 3rd grade the way I would through a film, or why, and this is totally true, people protested the renaming of a street from Union Avenue to Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. In 1989.
