Winnie Mandela

With "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom" now playing in theaters, here's a reminder that there was another person standing by Nelson Mandela's side in the struggle to rid South Africa of Apartheid, and she too has her own movie. "Winnie Mandela" is on its way to home video and we've got a few copies for some lucky readers along with one big grand prize.

Directed by Darrell J. Roodt ("Sarafina," "Cry The Beloved Country"), the film stars singer/actress Jennifer Hudson in the title role, the will the tell the story of a young Winnie, who finds love with Nelson Mandela (played by Terrence Howard) and continues his message of protest and resistance against a brutal Apartheid government, when Nelson gets imprisoned. For those looking to fill in the corners of the cinematic story in 'Long Walk To Freedom,' this might help. And we've got a poster signed by Jennifer Hudson along with a Blu-ray to give away as a grand prize, with some runner up copies of the movies as well. How do you win?

Email us your name, address and tells us what your favorite biopic is. Good luck!

"Winnie Mandela" arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on December 3rd.
