Premiering over a year ago at Toronto International Film Festival, the biopic Winnie will finally be arriving in theaters this fall. Directed by Darrell Roodt, the film follows Terrence Howard as Nelson Mandela, but more importantly, Jennifer Hudson as his wife Winnie. Based on Anne Marie du Preez Bezdrob‘s biography, it looks like your fairly standard, middle of the road take on a figure. While it didn’t get the strongest reviews during its festival run, it’s got to be better than our last look at a Mandela with Invictus. Check it out below via Yahoo for the film also starring Elias Koteas and Wendy Crewson.
This film reveals the enigma that is Winnie Mandela. A sensitive depiction, Winnie portrays her life’s journey amidst the unwavering love between her and Nelson Mandela, and their unfaltering commitment to the struggle for democracy in South Africa. Winnie takes the audience on an epic voyage of understanding – painting a vivid portrait of one of the world’s most remarkable women.
Winnie hits theaters later this year.
