Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
Starring: Idris Elba, Naomie Harris, Tony Kgoroge
Directed By: Justin Chadwick
Release Date: 11/29/2013
Based on the 1994 autobiography by Nelson Mandela, Luther star Idris Elba transforms himself into the former South African president to tell the tale about the anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician. Harris (Skyfall) plays Elba's love interest, Winnie Madikizela. This picture looks to be everything that the Academy looks for in a movie: strong character development, engaging storyline, and a cause that cinephiles can get behind.
