“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” is based on South African President Nelson Mandela‘s autobiography of the same name, which chronicles his early life, coming of age, education and 27 years in prison before becoming President and working to rebuild the country’s once segregated society. Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl) directs from a script by William Nicholson

    This actually touched me…once you are passionate about what you believe in, no matter how hard it is to achieve or how long it takes, things will always fall in place someday, He fought with a lot of passion, hope and faith and he was able to give his people freedom. I ll relate this to Nigeria’s situation, The racists can be compared to our selfish leaders and Madiba and the people can be compared to Nigerians. We may not have enough passion to fight hard yet but I see us standing our grounds soon, we will stand for our brothers and sisters that you have killed as a result of bad healthcare system, we will stand for those that died on the killer roads you have refused to reconstruct, we will stand for our unemployed youths,we will stand for the freedom fighters you have killed, just one day we will fight for what we truly believe in and fight for our rights and everything that we deserve as citizens of this country, we will fight for JUSTICE WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES AND GOD WILL FIGHT FOR US…

    This is what you call acting. It is clear Idris did a role study to understand his character, the understand the culture, to understand the environment. I mean pip that SA accent.

    One day naija movie industry will get there. One day we will tell the stories of our heroes. We will write and showcase our own history

    Idris got the accent so well i’m thinking they did a voice over with either mandela himself or an indigene that speaks alike. Freedom is what GOD gives us, why should our own elected leaders deprive us in anyway of it? GOD bless Mandela and save his heart…deep sighs

    As a South African, I am not really impressed by his accent.
    They never seem to get it right.
