Cast: Idris Elba, Naomie Harris

Inspiration: Nelson Mandela


Based on Nelson Mandela's 1994 autobiography of the same name, this is the story of an ordinary man who rose to the challenge of his times and triumphed—an intimate portrait of the making of a modern icon.

The epic motion picture will span Mandela's extraordinary life journey from his childhood in a rural village to his 27 years in prison for his activism against anti-apartheid; his emotionally-charged marriage to Winnie Mandela and through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected President of South Africa, as he works to rebuild the once-segregated country.

  • 5 stars "A fitting tribute to a 20th century giant! Mandela taught us to look to better the future rather then seeking payback for a poor past! Look to the future and not the past because we can't change the past only influence the future!"
