Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

Nominated for three Golden Globes, including Best Actor! “It is through Idris Elba’s finely etched performance that the real thesis of the film comes to the fore: it is Nelson Mandela’s universally relatable core humanity that defines his heroism”—Michael Dequina, The Movie Report. 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. “With the magnificent Elba to anchor it, the film gradually achieves a sort of grandeur, in the manner of the hero it depicts”—David Gritten, Daily Telegraph. PG-13. 146 Min.
