Among my top ten films of all time I list The Power of One, which has Morgan Freeman in a movie about standing against the wrongs of Aparthied – the segregation of blacks and whites in South Africa.
Morgan Freeman is returning to that theme in a story about Nelson Mandella which seems to have a strong paralell to Power of One, which instantly makes me downright inspired to see it.
If you aren’t familiar with the film, “Invictus” tells the true story of how Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) joined forces with the captain of South Africa’s rugby team, Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon), to help unite their country.
Check out the Trailer here:
This looks amazing, and has a great cast in it too. Damon looks amazing in this, and Freeman is channelling Mandella to perfection.
I can’t wait for this.
