Winnie Mandela

Her courage inspired a nation.


Winnie Mandela
It's taken a while to get here, but Darrell Roodt's biopic on the so-called ''mother of the nation'' finally hits the silver screens. This is the other half of the Nelson Mandela story, showing how he and Winnie met and married, before he went off to jail. She in turn became a popular leader, earning the wrath of the government, and going through very trying times.

108 minutes.
No persons under 10 (Language, Violence, Prejudice).
Biographical, Drama, Period piece, South African.

Tomatometer quote iconWinnie Mandela takes few chances and delves only superficially into its subject's life, making it feel more like a too-earnest made-for-TV movie than a proper biopic.
