THE PLANNING AND LEAD CASTING OF ‘LONG WALK TO FREEDOM’.


 

Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela

 

 

 

 

 

Idea to span audacity;

Aware, granted capacity;

Probe a deal it’s spoken will control,

And turn a terrible term, into a role.

    Nobody is perfect but Mandela was so much better that what was before and most of the world applauded his efforts and success in unifying South Africa without segregation.

      Mandela as the first president was magnificent. He really started things happening. If only there had been anything of a fraction of his stature to follow him instead of letting everything he had initiated go into free fall.

    I’ve not watched any of the movies regarding Mandela. No reason other than biopics (about anyone) aren’t in my sphere of interest. Also, when people become larger than life, their lives tend to become more legend than a reflection of reality and even more so in a visual medium like movies.

    . . . at least that has been my experience with nearly all portrayals of significant historical figures.
