a Movie-Invictus 8/16/10

August 16, 2010

I joined with my church friends to see this movie. This is about Nelson Mandela’s life around 1995 World Cup Rugby championship held at Ellis Park, Johannesburg, South Africa. The big success ( South Africa team, Springbok, won the championship!) made post-apartheid race relations easier. Without much of explanation the relationship between Mandela (Morgan Freeman) and Francois Pineaar-a captain of the team (Matt Damon)  is well portrayed. The process to the championship is the main point of the movie, and the movie shows the human’s possibility, strength, love, forgiveness–. After seeing one of the worst movies in my life recently (I won’t tell you the title!) this Invictus was eye-opening movie. Well done!
