Roman J. Israel, Esq.
Denzel is brilliant in this role giving a surprisingly emotional performance that at times will bring you to tears, unfortunately, the film around him is nothing exceptional and is sadly forgettable with the most memorable element being the title.
With a towering performance by David Oyelowo at its heart, Ava DuVernay's Selma is a riveting and thought-provoking portrait of the battle for civil rights in the American Deep South of the 1960s.
