Directed by Clint Eastwood, Invictus is based on a true story and set in the years following the abolition of apartheid – days in which Nelson Mandela was trying to unite a country divided by years of racial segregation.
With the 1995 Rugby World Cup being hosted in South Africa, Mandela charges Springbok captain Francois Piennar with winning the tournament.
What happens over the course of the ensuing games unites the country like never before.
Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon received Oscar nominations for their portrayals of Nelson Mandela and Francois Piennar respectively, so it’s the perfect film to remind you of the unifying power of sport and will get you in the perfect mood for the next few weeks.
