Through news footage, interviews and personal recollections, this Oscar-nominated biopic about South Africa's brilliant leader charts Nelson Mandela's rise from the village to the city, where he becomes an attorney, an African National Congress activist, a political prisoner and, finally, president. Living history doesn't get much better than this: 80-year-old Mandela himself narrates on screen.
