Matt Damon seems to have got the biog-bug; first he starred in the real-life tale of Mark Whitacre in The Informant!, then he went all Sauff-Africin as Francois Pienaar in Invictus, and now he’s revealed that in his next project he’ll be playing John F Kennedy’s younger brother Robert. Robert Kennedy overcame the shadow of his sibling’s assassination to forge his own political career, only to die by another assassin’s bullet in 1968.
On February 11, 1990 when Nelson Mandela walked free from Robben Island after more than a quarter of a century of incarceration in his eight feet by eight feet cell, he discovered a country divided by apartheid. How could he bring people together? By uniting team and supporters on the rugby pitch. Director Clint Eastwood has done it again with Invictus, a wonderfully uplifting film that follows the true story of Nelson Mandela’s quest to reuinte his fractured country through the peaceful bonds of of giant men bashing into each other.
