IN­VIC­TUS, RTE 2, SATUR­DAY 8.30PM

The film tells the in­spir­ing true story of how Nel­son Man­dela joined forces with the cap­tain of South Africa’s rugby team to help unite their coun­try.

Newly elected Pres­i­dent Man­dela knows his na­tion re­mains racially and eco­nom­i­cally di­vided in the wake of apartheid. Believ­ing he can bring his peo­ple to­gether through the uni­ver­sal language of sport, Man­dela ral­lies South Africa’s un­der­dog rugby team as they make an un­likely run to the 1995 World Cup Cham­pi­onship match.
