Actor Morgan Freeman portrays anti-apartheid activist and former South African president Nelson Mandela in this Clint Eastwood-helmed political drama adapted from author John Carlin's book The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Changed the World. Set just after the fall of apartheid and during Mandela's first term in office, The Human Factor explores how the political prisoner-turned-president used the 1995 Rugby World Cup -- which was hosted by South Africa -- as a means of bringing blacks and whites together after decades of violence and mistrust. Matt Damon co-stars in the Warner Bros. production as rugby player Francois Pienaar.

This was a wonderful story of inspiration in a torn county. It is not at all about rugby in the sense of the word, but about how the game helped bring a racially torn country together. Morgan Freeman is wonderful as usual, as well as Matt Damon. According to this movie, Mandela was a very was a very wise man. A lot of his sayings remind me of the book of Proverbs in the bible. Quite an intersting story. I will purchase the book.
