Contest: Win Tickets to 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' (Contest Closed)

One of the most inspiring true stories hitting the big screen this holiday season is the upcoming biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Idris Elba stars as Nelson Mandela in this story about the South African President’s extraordinary journey to becoming the leader of a once segregated nation. The film had an enthusiastic premier at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year and is sure to touch audiences when it lands in theatres later this month.

Synopsis: Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is based on South African President Nelson Mandela’s autobiography of the same name, which chronicles his early life, coming of age, education and 27 years in prison before becoming President and working to rebuild the country’s once segregated society. Idris Elba (Prometheus) stars as Nelson Mandela, Naomie Harris (Skyfall) stars as Winnie Mandela, with Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl) directing.
