The March Across Edmund Pettus Bridge from ‘Selma’ | Rotten Tomatoes’ 21 Most Memorable Moments

Vote for your favorite movie moment of the past 21 years!

When we think about movies from the last 21 years that will likely still be cherished as landmark films for the next 21, it’s hard to go past Ava DuVernay’s ‘Selma.’ The Oscar-nominated film, which is Certified Fresh at 99% on the Tomatometer, is an intimate and dramatically rich telling of three pivotal months in the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and in America’s Civil Rights movement. Its most potent scenes are perhaps the three moments in which Dr. King and his supporters and fellow protestors attempt to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge and start the march from Selma to Montgomery. After two attempts – one thwarted by cruel violence, the other aborted by Dr. King himself – the marchers make it over the bridge in a moment of triumph and continue on to make history. Here, Representative John Lewis of Georgia, who was with Dr. King on those occasions, reflects on the final march, along with Stephan James, who portrays the Congressman on screen. This breakdown of the iconic sequence is part of Rotten Tomatoes’ Most Memorable Moments series, celebrating the most electrifying, terrifying, moving, and hilarious movie moments from the last 21 years.
