In­vic­tus

TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

Clint East­wood’s ster­ling biopic is far more than just a sports drama. Set against the back­drop of the 1995 Rugby World Cup, the film re­volves around the new South African Pres­i­dent Nel­son Man­dela as he at­tempts to steer a course of har­mony in the apartheid-torn na­tion by court­ing François Pien­aar, the cap­tain of the al­most en­tirely white Spring­boks na­tional rugby union team. Mor­gan Free­man is per­fect as Man­dela, as is Matt Da­mon as Pien­aar, and their scenes to­gether are elec­tri­fy­ing.

MOR­GAN HOPED THAT MATT WOULD TRY, TRY AND TRY AGAIN
