Eastwood's modest approach to these momentous events shames the usual Hollywood showboating. In a rare achievement, he's made a film that truly is good for the soul. show more

As always, Freeman is a one-man charm offensive. show more
awesome movie you have to see it.
Another excellent film from Clint Eastwood. Nelson Mandela is the newly elected president of a deeply divided South Africa and recognizes his main task is to try to unify separate races into one nation capable of solving its serious problems. Seeking a means to inspire the country to unite, he focus on the Rugby team's attempt to win the world cup, a near impossible task. He exerts his skilled leadership to inspire the Rugby team. Even winning a couple of games in the world cup competition would be quite an accomplishment. An inspiring movie about inspiration.
