Out tomorrow, anyone else planning to see this? Reviews have been amazing, very much looking forward to it.
Film 2015 was raving about it
based on not much, but then saw the trailer in the cinema and it looks really good
got the spoilers from a GCSE history lesson in the late 90s though :0(
Lapses occasionally into Serious Issue Film 101 but Oyelowo is fantastic (especially in King's moments of doubt) and there are a lot of powerful moments.
A bit baffled over the fuss over how Lyndon Johnson is portrayed. It does sound like the film is a little harsh on him compared to how events actually panned out but he's still shown to be a decent man when all is said and done.
So so so good. Easily the best of the Oscar nominated films IMO. It could have been really showy and earnest but wasn't at all. Yeah, see it.
