Nelson Mandela x Long Walk To Freedom

The buzz around this film is growing, so we took a look at the trailer for Long Walk To Freedom released in the US a few days ago. The film is the adaptation of the book of the same name. A biography of the life of Nelson Mandela portrayed by our own leading Brit actors Idris Elba and his co-star Naomie Harris who plays Winnie Mandela. Directed by Justin Chadwick first look at the trailer is impressive. Stand out performances from Elba and Harris', their portrayals are authentic and believable, right down to the accents. The storyline takes us through his early years in Mvezo Transkei growing up as a young boy, through to his time as President of South Africa, the history of an important icon of our times. Check out the official full trailer released in the US last Friday we're loving it, it's eclipsing the UK teaser version right now. Look out for Long Walk To Freedom the US has an early release date, November 29 2013 in time for award season, the UK general date is 3rd January 2014. We wish them many award trophies on their mantelpieces.
