‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Moves To Blu-ray This March

mandelaWhile it did not end up as a favorite of the year for me, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom was a commendable effort, thanks to the very good performances from both Idris Elba and Naomie Harris.  Now the film will be available for all, come March 18th.  Here’s some official info:  Nelson Mandela’s extraordinary journey to becoming one of history’s most iconic figures is brought to life in MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM.  “Idris Elba powerfully conveys Mandela’s charisma and impassioned dedication” (Claudia Puig, USA TODAY) as a political leader and human rights advocate. The film chronicles his early life, education, marriage to Winnie Mandela (Naomie Harris) and 27 year prison sentence before becoming South Africa’s first democratically elected president and working to rebuild the country’s once segregated society.  Read on to learn more about this upcoming release.
