The Color Of Freedom

So this review is a little late – we watched the movie two days ago. It’s based on a true story as told in a book by James Gregory, a prison guard for South Africa. He was assigned in the position to be in charge of the censorship office on Robben Island – where Nelson Mandela was held for 20+ years. The movie is about the relationship that the two of them form and their respective roles in Mandela’s freeing. It’s got pretty good acting and directing, but the story is so compelling that it comes to you as highly recommended. I can tell you that having been to South Africa and on Robben Island and into Mandela’s cell certainly added a lot of context to the film.
