There is a lot going for this film. It’s a great drama that showcases the marches, and King’s speeches are brilliant, especially with Oyelowo’s performance. As with all historical films, there are things that don’t seem as truthful or realistic as what actually happened. The film does give us a sense of the protests and the obstacles that African American’s had after the Civil Rights Act. The film also puts President Johnson into a bad light, but Hollywood loves to hate their presidents. This film has it’s moments – good and bad – making it worth a watch.
