Mandela - A Long Walk to Freedom - wonderful book made into powerful movie
And now it has been made into a movie.
Last evening I had the great privilege of seeing a private screening hosted by publishers PQ.Blackwell.
Based on Nelson Mandela's autobiography of the same name, which chronicles his early life, coming of age, education and 27 years in prison before becoming President and working to rebuild the country’s once segregated society. Idris Elba stars as Nelson Mandela, Naomie Harris stars as Winnie Mandela, with Justin Chadwick directing.
It is a powerful and very moving movie which opens in New Zealand cinemas tomorrow. .
