The inspiring film based on a true story, Invictus tells of the tale of a fractured country brought together by the love of a sport. Morgan Freeman plays Nelson Mandella and Matt Damon plays Francois Pienaar, the captain of the South African national rugby team. The hosts for the 1995 Rugby World Cup, South Africa faces many changes as they recover from years of apartheid. Newly-elected President Mandela forms a plan to change the all-white rugby team to fully represent the people of the country; and in doing so, galvanize their spirits and encourage South Africans to unite. This heartwarming film will appeal to all sports fans and anyone who appreciates a good story played by very talented actors. Invictus will be released on DVD on Tuesday, May 18.
They shoot, they score!
