Invictus

















Since this month is the football World Cup in the nation of South Africa...I thought it would be appropriate to watch Clint Eastwoods inspiring film Invictus...Based on the true story of South Africas 1995 world cup rugby champions...Clint tells how one of the most important political figures of our generation Nelson Mendella inspired and untied his nation...Matt Damon losses the weight he gained to play the Mark Whitacre in The Informant and packed on the muscle to play captain of the rugby team Francois Pienaar...I believe when asked who he'd like to see play him on film Mendella thought Morgan Freeman could pull it off... Mendella got his wish and Freeman channels the great leader...Even though I still don't understand the sport of rugby Eastwood made a really great uplifting film...It's nice to see a film about South Africa with out it ending on a sad note...
