    I have walked a long walk to freedom. It has been a long road, and it is not over yet. No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin. People learn to hate. They can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart.



    Mandela doesn't have much time left...but this looks really good and is "good" timing if turns out as good as the trailer indicates.

    Inb4 Morgan Freeman is Nelson Mandela.

    Love Elba, and I'm sure he turns in a great performance- but not sure he fits the role.

    How the hell is Morgan Freeman going to pass as a 40 year old Nelson Mandela?

    Morgan Freeman already looks like the 95 year old Mandela.

    Just saw it is going to premier at the Toronto Film festival. Maybe I should take my ass down there to see it.

    wonder if they will show Winnie giving people necklaces or NMs days as an ANC terrorist?

    probably not

    Lol did you even watch the trailer? There's a whole clip with him dressed in all black and a guy explaining to him how the bombs go off. But I do get your point, he'll most likely be portrayed as a freedom fighter with no flaws, and I'll leave it at that before this gets moved to taboo.
