Justin Chadwick directs this award-winning biopic of the former South African President and key anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela. Idris Elba stars as Mandela, who grows up in a nation divided by racial segregation laws but doesn't become politicised until his university years. While training as a lawyer, Mandela becomes increasingly aware of the injustice suffered by black South Africans in a country run almost exclusively by whites. His relationships with like-minded spirits such as his wife Winnie (Naomie Harris) fuel his radicalism and lead him into a conflict with the authorities that sees him imprisoned on Robben Island with other anti-apartheid activists for over a decade. With unrest growing throughout the nation, Mandela becomes an increasingly influential figure despite his imprisonment, leading him to hope that he may yet lead his people on the walk to freedom. The film was nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Original Song and won the corresponding award at the Golden Globes.
Clint Eastwood directs this drama based on events that took place during the first term of Nelson Mandela's presidency of South Africa. In an effort to help unite his racially and economically divided country in the wake of the apartheid system, the newly-elected Mandela (Morgan Freeman) joins forces with Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon), captain of South Africa's rugby team The Springboks. Convinced that he can use the universal language of sport to help bring his people together, Mandela rallies the team as it makes its historic run to the 1995 Rugby World Cup Championship final against New Zealand.
Justin Chadwick directs this heartwarming tale based on a true story. Set in a remote mountain village in Kenya, the film tells the story of 84-year-old former Mau Mau freedom fighter Maruge (Oliver Litondo) and his determination to learn how to read and write. When the Kenyan government promises free education for all, Maruge decides that the time has finally come for him to go to school. Fighting for his right to learn as vehemently as he once fought for his political beliefs, he manages to overcome fierce opposition and ridicule and enrols at the local primary school, where he joins a class of six-year-olds as they learn the rudiments of literacy. Naomie Harris co-stars as the school's impassioned headmistress, Jane Obinchu.
