Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Honestly this is nothing more than your typical, earnest, overcoming-impossible-odds, rise-to-power biopic. But Idris Elba is quietly compelling as prisoner-turned-president Nelson Mandela, and the timing couldn't be more fortuitous. Officially sanctioned by the Mandela family, the story is dutiful, reverential and rather straightforward. 139 minutes PG-13.
