What does Nelson Mandela do after becoming president of South Africa? He rejects revenge, forgives oppressors who jailed him 27 years for his fight against apartheid and finds hope of national unity in an unlikely place: the rugby field. Clint Eastwood (named 2009's Best Director by the National Board of Review) directs an uplifting film about a team and a people inspired to greatness. Morgan Freeman (NBR's Best Actor Award winner and Oscar nominee for this role) is Mandela, who asks the national rugby team captain (Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee Matt Damon) and his squad to do the impossible and win the World Cup. Prepare to be moved--and thrilled.
a really good film about the time; these many years later we forget. Morgan Freeman was GREAT! Matt Damon was good.Published 4 days ago by MikeNJ
This picks up with Mandela being released from prison. I recommend "Mandela", also on BluRay, which shows Mandela's life before and during prison. Read morePublished 13 days ago by David A. Schultz
