An ambitious look at a true revolutionary
Idris Elba plays Nelson Mandela in this biopic that follows his life from childhood, through 27 years in prison, to being elected president and working to rebuild a country. Portraying such an influential figure is no mean feat, and Elba manages to create a nuanced character. This is the story before accolades were bestowed on Mandela, looking at his time as a freedom fighter and beyond. Best available seating. Over 18s only. Your ticket includes a main meal of your choice.
"The restrained intensity of Idris Elba's performance as Nelson Mandela ennobles this ambitiously sprawling biopic."
