Invictus is must to see movie

Better watch the video if you missed this movie.

Pls view the trailer

.

 Invictus is directed by Clint Eastwood 

starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon.

Now I somehow understand who Nelson Mandela is and why Europeans and Americans loved him dearly.    This happens after the fall of apartheid in South Africa, during his term as president, when he campaigned to host the 1995 Rugby World Cup event as an opportunity to unite his countrymen.   

Trully inspiring!

The title comes from the fact that Mandela had the poem written on a scrap of paper on his prison cell while he was incarcerated. In the movie, Mandela gives the “Invictus” poem to his national rugby team’s captain Francois Pienaar before the start of the Rugby World Cup. In reality, Mandela provided Pienaar with an extract from Theodore Roosevelt’s “The Man in the Arena” speech from 1910.

Hope the people and institution behind this film also tell to the world the story of Jose Rizal, Juan Luna, Ninoy Aquino, Cory Aquino, etc.  All these are from the Philippines.
