I'm referring to the 2010 BBC TV movie Mrs. Mandela starring Sophie Okonedo and David Harewood as Nelson.
The film was broadcast in January 2010 in the U.K. and a few months later here the U.S., but unfortuntately it was shown here on a small little viewed cable network with no fanfare. And it has not been released on DVD or has been available on Netflix to my knowledge.
Needless to say, you can probably count on two hands the number of people who have actually seen it in the U.S., but if you're one of those persons (or someone who saw it on BBC) could you tell us your reaction to it?
But judging from the trailer, it looks like a more low-key (in that typical British TV way), decidely unromantic and introspective view of the Mandelas and their relationship, and Harewood is a more convincing Nelson Mandela than Terrence Howard, that's for sure.
