Synopsis

Idris Elba plays the African National Congress legend who overcame apartheid to become the first black president of South Africa. Director Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl) chronicles Nelson Mandela's journey from his childhood in a rural village via 27 years in solitary confinement through to his inauguration as the country's president. A solid, richly-peopled biopic distinguished by a career-best performance from Elba.
