Drama



The nearly two-and-a-half summation of the recently deceased South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician is conventional to the point of rudimentary, as it chronicles Nelson Mandela's life from idealistic lawyer to political prisoner to world leader. British actor Idris Elba plays the man himself, presenting a magnetic, reverent portrayal of Mandela despite Elba's hulking frame and debonair good looks.
