Movie synopsis: Nelson Mandela has already become a legend worldwide – a fighter against apartheid who spent 27 years in prison and then became the President of South Africa, reconciling the adverse sides of the black and white populations. Director Justin Chadwick based the film on an adaptation of Mandela's autobiography from 1994, thus focusing on the period from his childhood through the period of boxing enthusiasm, legal battles, and the moment of becoming a freedom fighter and being imprisoned by the regime for many years. Mandela's political foresight comes to the fore after his release from prison, when he transforms the rule of a minority into a democratic state as the very first black president. Idris Elba is excellent in the role of Mandela and was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance.
Awards and Nominations: Golden Globes (2014) - Best Original Song
