Elba may not resemble the man he's playing, but he gets the details right, from the singsong accent and shrewd image-making to the fire for change that drives him.3 stars out of 4 -- [The film] does a worthy job of honoring both its subject and its audience....The story propels itself along while awakening in viewers some profound emotions.[Elba] turns in maybe the most complete and compelling interpretation of Mandela the man and Mandela the symbol...4 stars out of 5 -- This is a handsome and confident adaptation of the great man’s autobiography, using sharp snapshots to create an emotional through-line.Nelson Mandela's life story is told in this adaptation of the South African leader's autobiography that details his early life, education, 27-year imprisonment, and eventual presidency and rebuilding of the previously segregated country.
