Selma (Ava DuVernay, 2014). Civil rights in Alabama, 1964-65. Lots of earnestness, lots of British actors, and a couple of very good scenes between David Oyelowo and Carmen Ejogo that hint at a different kind of personal history of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Coretta Scott King. But this movie isn’t really that.
Cake (Daniel Barnz, 2014). Pretty good role for Jennifer Aniston, despite the obvious deglamorized trappings of an “award-worthy” performance.
