His people needed a leader. He gave them a champion.
Newly elected President Nelson Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa's rugby team as they make their historic run to the 1995 Rugby World Cup Championship match.

Such an inaccurate portrayal of how we white South African's treated the "previously disadvantaged" black community, making us look like the monsters.

What BS!!!

I felt angered to no end after I saw how Clint Eastwood made us "apartheid regime" whites were like the scum of the Earth, and the black community is the ones that should be sympathized with (where it turned out that they were just as bad if not worse in politics then what the white government was). My ancestors probably rolled in their graves when they saw how this movie was portrayed.

If you wanna see a more accurate South Africa apartheid role try "Stander" it is much better portayed than this.

I just heard on the news that Nelson Mandela has passed away.

Not just in his home country South-Africa, but in the eyes of many people worldwide Nelson Mandela stood for a strong and powerful voice against racism. It is really a shame that his fight against suppression and racism took 46 years (1944-1990). By the time he became president of South-Africa in 1994 he was already an old man of 75 years old. He could have done so much more for the world and his country if he was released from Robben island years earlier. But nevertheless his accomplishments are just as great as those from others in name immortal people like Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Aung San Suu Kyi and mother Teresa.

May he rest in peace.
