Golden Globe-Nominated ‘Selma’ a ‘Moving Masterpiece’

Open in limited release since Christmas Day, Paramount and Ava Duvernay’s “moving masterpiece” Selma goes wide this week — and it’d be hard to find a current film as of-the-moment as it is historically significant. The film tells the story of Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Ala., and has already received a flurry of award nominations, including four Golden Globes and five Independent Spirit Awards.

You can watch the trailer above and look for it in theaters this weekend.  In New York City, there may be a lot of teenagers: thanks to a fund created by 27 African-American leaders in the New York business community who were inspired by the film’s message of resilience and hope, the city’s 7th, 8th and 9th graders will be able to see Selma for free at participating theaters.
