Impressed by the good interpretation presented by Jennifer Hudson. It's very hard to come up with a solid biopic on someone who is still not just alive but current in everybody's minds, especially after Mr. Mandela's death. I would say that I learnt a lot of details about her life and struggles but was also left craving for some more explanations as to the why of it all. Why she changed, why did she lose her faith, why compassion abandoned her heart and why did she stop caring for it all.
Terrence Howard delivers as a believable Madiba but the comparison with Morgan Freeman's performance is inevitable. All in all, a very good movie with lots of South African cultural traditions, scenery, language, rituals an historical references. Worth watching.
