The biopic tells the story of Winnie Mandela (Hudson), wife of iconic South African political figure Nelson Mandela (Howard). Based on the biography written by Anne Marie du Preez Bezdrob, the story appears to be pretty much your average tale where public figures are involved.
The production doesn’t take any particular strong stance on the events in question either, which I can only imagine leads to a tolerable film at best, but the trailer does present what looks like a beautifully shot project.
