Ava DuVernay’s film Selma stars David Oyelowo, Oprah Winfrey, and Tom Wilkinson. Grae Drake speaks to them about why they believe there hasn’t been a feature length film about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, and why now is the perfect time for one.

Tim Roth, Carmen Ejogo, and Common also weigh in on whether or not they had any reservations about taking on roles that featured real-life figures.
