Winnie Mandela trailer presents two worlds

Winnie.jpgThe trailer for Winnie, the story of Winnie Mandela, has arrived online and it presents a story of two worlds. From the frozen frame on the trailer player and the first half of the trailer I was thinking this was a romanticised Hollywood story of her life but it does take a turn and seems to look to a more factual story that will address the darker side as well as the fight for justice and what was right.

What it does look like is that we're going to get an Oscar worthy performance from Jennifer Hudson who plays Winnie Mandela and perhaps similar from Terrence Howard who plays Nelson Mandela and also Elias Koteas.

These three performances are the ones featured in the trailer for Winnie and they all look like they have the potential to be fantastic roles in a fantastic film.

As I said I was concerned that the film was going to be a rose tinted Hollywood gloss over of the real life story but from the latter half of the trailer it does look like it will tell all both good and bad.

The blurb for Winnie is pretty short but the trailer tells you everything you need to know.

A drama that chronicles the life of Winnie Mandela from her childhood through her marriage and her husband's incarceration.

The film is adapted from Anne Marie du Preez Bezdrob's biography by Andre Pieterse and Darrell Roodt who also directed, Roodt directed Sarafina! and Cry, the Beloved Country.

So let's get to that trailer for Winnie which is on Yahoo Canada through Cinema Blend and First Showing.

It is a great trailer and you should stick with it, even if you are starting to think it's a romanticised story, stay watching.

Well? Oscar worthy is written all over that trailer, but then it is just a trailer.
