Title: Mandela: Long Walk
Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Starring: Idris Elba, Naomie Harris, Terry Pheto
Synopsis: Powerful is the only world to describe both the man and the Movie. It is difficult to be anything other than inspired by the life led by Nelson Mandela. The South African freedom fighter-turned-president, and endured a life time of hardship because of his constant fight for the rights of blacks in his country. Mandela lobg walk to freedom tells his story in a dramatic and moving way.
We meet Mandela (Idris Elba) in his early years as a lawyer, representing the poor and powerless black in his community. He was not a political figure, but the African National Congress (ANC) could see the charism he carried and wanted him to be a leader in his organisation.
Finally, the daily oppression he experienced made him join ANC ranks and his path of confrontation with the government was set. These were defiant times in South Africa and the infamous sharpville massacre only hardened the resolve of the ANC to make change happen.
When Mandela and his cohorts began blowing up government buildings, his days were numbered. Arrested and convicted, he was sentenced to life imprison on Robben Island. This was a man who had every reason to harbor hatred and bitterness, but that was not how he was made up. His resolve was to fight for the rights of all black South Africans and his personal circumstances played no part in that.
We are given an incredible insight into his prison life and the heart breaking lacking of content with his wife and family. When the worldwide cresando of support forced the government to release and negotiate with Mandela, the man who emerged was a ready made statesman who wanted to rebuild the country. And revenge was to play no part in that.
Elba is quite striking in his portrayal. He makes you feel as if you are there watching Mandela’s life unfold. And Naomie Harris, who plays Winnie Madikizela is very convincing as the loving wife then very dangerous. This ushered in a second wife. Mandela: Longwalk to freedom
