Nelson Mandela (autobiography)
William Nicholson

Idris Elba, Naomie Harris, Terry Pheto

MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM is based on South African President Nelson Mandela’s autobiography of the same name, which chronicles his early life, coming of age, education and 27 years in prison before becoming President and working to rebuild the country’s once segregated society.

Idris Elba (PROMETHEUS) stars as Nelson Mandela with Justin Chadwick (THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL) directing.

"A conventional biopic made anything but conventional by the magnitude of its subject's life and accomplishments, and by Idris Elba's imposing performance in the title role."

-- Steven ReaPhiladelphia Inquirer

"In those moments when Elba shows the doubts, compromises and complications that make the man, we get glimpses of a life truly lived."

-- Peter TraversRolling Stone

"Elba ... inhabits a role that was designed to be worn."

--Michelle OrangeVillage Voice
