Idris Elba, Riaad Moosa
(Anchor Bay / March 18, 2014)
Idris Elba ("Luther") does commendable work as the South African icon in this biography, which was entering the main phase of its theatrical run when Nelson Mandela died.
The film traces the hugely inspirational leader's experiences up to and through his presidency, including his 27 years in prison and his relationship with wife Winnie (Naomie Harris, "Skyfall"). DVD extras: "making-of"documentary; audio commentary by director Justin Chadwick. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
