When it was announced at the end of the London premiere of Long Walk to Freedom that Nelson Mandela was dead, the audience and cast rose to their feet, cheering and crying for the man who helped bring freedom to his country. And as the film dared to show, Mandela was very much a man and not a legend, with flaws and inconsistencies that only made his accomplishments and call for reconciliation more remarkable. As Mandela, The Wire and Luther's Idris Elba finally gets a film role that uses his prodigious talent, and he is matched in intensity by Kenyan actress Naomie Harris, as the dangerously impulsive Winnie Mandela. 141 min.


"Elba's towering performance lends Long Walk to Freedom a Shakespearean breadth." - Stephen Holden, New York Times.
