“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” Is A Must See Film
Movie critics are saying that Idris Elba did a stellar job as Nelson Mandela in the new film "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom". The film, released on Christmas day, is the official story of Nelson Mandela who was in prison for nearly 30 years. It tells the story of his journey in the country of South Africa as a youth and into his elderly years (from birth to marriage to imprisonment to presidency).
Critics say the movie is extremely well produced, and features two excellent lead performances. And, Elba, the star of the film, has received all kinds of accolades for his performance. The Boston Globe says the film is "sincere, honorable, and perfect for showing to the kids. It’s one long teachable moment."
The film also features a theme song called "Ordinary Love" by U2 that is being featured on the film's soundtrack. It is the first song from the popular group since 2010.
The film also stars actresses Noamie Harris as Winnie Mandela (his 2nd wife), and Terry Pheto as Evelyn Mase (his first wife). Directed by Justin Chadwick, the 146-minute film is rated PG-13 for intense violence, disturbing images, sexual content, brief strong language.
