How important is it for a film based on historical events to get its facts right? Controversy has surrounded the new film "Selma", about Martin Luther King Jr. and fight to pass the Voting Rights Act in 1965. We talk with our movie buffs, Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday and the Maryland Film Festival's Jed Dietz.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
