February's Finest Films

It's February, and while we're shivering in our boots, we're also lining up to see the hottest films this year. Have a look at our favourites and the trailers below.

Selma

Selma

You would expect a film about Martin Luther King to centre around the March on Washington and the iconic “I Have a Dream” speech, but this absorbing biopic instead focuses on the 1965 Selma to Montgomery marches in Alabama, which led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act.

This key battle of the Civil Rights Movement—marking its 50th anniversary this year—is an ideal vehicle for exploring the complex character of Dr King, who remains an inspiration amid personal turmoil and appalling racial violence. David Oyelowo is flawless as King, but the film is worth seeing for the supporting cast alone, especially Tom Wilkinson as President Johnson and Tim Roth as Governor George Wallace.
