Unifying sport

INVICTUS do not tell you about the life story of Mandela (you can read his autobiography for that). It is about rugby, the sport, which unifies a country fresh from the breakdown of apartheid, and the fresh leadership of a black leader. Nominated for Best Actor (Freeman) and Best Supporting Actor (Damon) at the Oscars, the film is akin to Pacquiao and boxing in the Philippines. Go catch the movie.
