Invictus

<p>Matt Damon in "Invictus."</p>

 

"Invictus" tells the inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) joined forces with the captain of South Africa's rugby team (Matt Damon) to help unite their country. Newly elected President Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa's underdog rugby team as they make an unlikely run to the 1995 World Cup Championship match.

Clint Eastwood directs this adaptation of the book "Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Changed the World."
