When I tell you I can’t wait to see this movie, I know Idris slayed as the late Nelson Mandela and because of it there is buzz of a possible Oscar nomination for Idris. If that is the case it will be well deserved, the movie stars Idris Elba and Naomie Harris, Long Walk To Freedom follows Mandela’s life from his childhood in the rural Eastern Cape, through his activism during the apartheid era and decades in prison, before being elected as South Africa’s first black president in 1994.
Here is the the trailer for the movie, if you haven’t seen it “Mandela” zeroes in on key highlights from Mandela’s amazing life story, including his twenty-year incarceration and his marriage to Winnie Mandela (wonderfully played by Naomie Harris) delivering a home run of a biopic in the process. The Royal Family had a chance to see the movie last night and meet with Idris and Naomie Harris….. Check them out below.
