“Freedom it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die”
One of the year’s most highly anticipated movies finally has an extended trailer. In the recently released video (below), Idris Elba stars as a young Mandela and Naomie Harris opposite him as wife Winnie. “I have beautiful children and a beautiful wife, I want them to walk freely in their own land,” the actor is coined saying in his rendition of the former president of South Africa.
The trailer divulges into his fight against his oppressors and how Winnie was right there holding down his family as well as his spirit when all was against him.
Press play to watch.
