An emotional insight into the struggle and hardship of an amazing leader and nation. It is shocking to think that it happened only a few decades ago, and sad to think that similar prejudices are still going on in the world today (equality for gays).

Rarely can a biopic claim to be more warranted, or closer to its source, than ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’. Not only does this two-hour ‘official’ biography tell the story of one of the 20th century’s most remarkable men – it features extensive interviews and narration from Mandela himself, tracing the Nobel Peace Prize winner's life from his childhood in the village of Xhosa right through to his 1994 inauguration as President of South Africa. It also features some serious local talent: Idris Elba (‘The Wire’, ‘Prometheus’) stars as Mandela opposite another Londoner, Naomie Harris (’28 Days Later’, ‘Skyfall’), who plays his wife Winnie.
