The first half of the movie was his personal life love, family, and etc. It was a good movie. It had its boring moments, but it was done well. Great deal of info I didn’t know was given to you. The rest of what I did know was left out. I wish more of the hard side of life was shown. The voting scandal would have been nice to have had in there, like the lack of ballots to certain areas, lost ballots, etc. All of that played a huge part in their fight for freedom. Also there was a lack of murder and genocide for this era.
Will I see it again or buy it once it is on DVD? Definitely. I appreciate the history and knowledge given to me about South Africa. I give it a star rating *** out of ****.
