One dream can change the world.

This week's Oscar hopeful is set in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. The film received a Best Picture nom, but controversially neither a Best Director nor Best Actor nomination.
