One review

  • This is the biopic of this man with a uncommon ethical sense, Nelson Mandela, who made a lasting mark in the 20th century. As many others, I had a general knowledge therefore imprecise, of the life and times of this remarkable man. This film allows us to appreciate and I strongly underline this, without complacency, why this man became a great among the greats. As in most dramatized biopics, we can doubt some of the facts presented, but I believe the film to be right on the mark most times. Even inviting us to further expand our knowledge of his life. This film is beautiful and a fitting tribute to this historic figure. Finally, Idris Elba is the title role is extraordinary is his demeanour and his tone. A must see!
