I will see any film with Leonardo DeCaprio in it, especially when it's directed by Martin Scorsese and based on a real story, so I was pretty excited when I went into the cinema.
The opening scene lays out exactly where the film is going, unfortunately it stays there a bit too long for me. Of course Leo gives a great performance, when doesn't he? And the film is hilarious in parts, especially the overdose scene, you can see why Leo won a Best Actor in a comedy award, although Matthew McConaughey was pretty funny too. But why is it so long?
A compelling story of Mandela's politics, his struggles and sacrifices and how he changed his country, but at it's heart of this film lies a love story. The narrative spans his life before, during and after prison and includes insight into his family, comrades, loves and personal heartache, while offering a powerful cinematic experience. I highly recommend it...Naomi
