I'm usually very skeptical about biopics in which non South Africans are used to portray South Africans. They can never quite get the accent and thus the character right but I stand corrected. This was hard to ignore because of the words Idris and Elba. Naomie Harris, the actress who plays Mam'Winnie also looked like she really knew what she was doing in the film. Never seen her before and would love to see more of her. I watched the trailer for this on Saturday and I kid you not, it made me cry. My friends were like ''get a grip''. Apartheid will never stop looking bad.
