Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom - It Is An Ideal For Which I Am Prepared To Die


Nelson is a young South African lawyer fighting cases for the black, helping them get justice in a biased system. His charisma and popularity encourages the African National Congress to draw him into their folds.

He becomes a part of the civil rights movement, but when the peaceful protesters are massacred by the police, the movement becomes violent. Soon afterwards Nelson ends up in jail in a remote island, where he spends many years.

His wife meanwhile takes leadership of the group and leads the 'Free Nelson Mandela movement'. 

Will he be freed? Will racism end in South Africa?


Rating: Yellow - a decent time-pass. Somehow, just didn't feel real - not sure if its the acting or the storytelling, but at no point in the movie did I feel completely immersed in it.

PS: As is usual with real-life based movies, specially period movies, this movie may also have errors in places, some unintentional, and some intentional as the makers might have taken creative freedom.
