About the Film
From director Clint Eastwood, "Invictus" tells the inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) joined forces with the captain of South Africa's rugby team, Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon), to help unite their country. Newly elected President Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa's underdog rugby team as they make an unlikely run to the 1995 World Cup Championship match.
This film is incredible, it brings back so many memories about the homeland!! Well done clint!!!
Madiba forever Invictus
Invictus, although with several factual inaccuracies, has got to be one of the great biopic films out there at the moment, and is a definite must watch film to introduce yourself to the issue of post-apartheid South Africa.
The films title, which means 'unconquered' in Latin, is taken from a poem of the same name and was written by William Ernest Henley in 1875. Nelson Mendela regularly used the poem to help him through his imprisonment up until his release in 1990, and you hear Morgan Freeman's monologue of it at the end of the film.
Such an inspiring movie really so amazing thank goodness coming out at midnight tonight staying up till then!!!!!
