This epic film spans Nelson Mandela’s extraordinary life, portraying his childhood in a rural village, the 27 years he spent imprisoned, through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected President of South Africa. Mandela is the thrilling story of an ordinary man who rose to the challenge of his times and triumphed – an intimate portrait of the making of a modern icon. Idris Elba (Luther, The Wire) gives a mesmerising performance as Mandela, perfectly capturing the courage and determination displayed by this great man.
