Rugby film inspired by prison ode

The premiere is organised by the Warwick Croquet Club.

Tickets for this movie premiere are for sale at Warwick Twin Cinema and will also be available for sale at the door on the night.

Invictus, a poem which inspired Nelson Mandela during his time in prison, and helped him to “stand when all he wanted to do was lie down”, forms the title for this wonderful film.

In 1990, Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) was released after 27 years in prison and in 1994 became South Africa’s President.

Desperate for a way to rebuild his country which had been torn apart by apartheid, he believed this might be accomplished by giving his countrymen something they could cheer about – a successful rugby union team for the upcoming 1995 World Rugby Cup.

This movie is more about unification than about winning the championship and is a happy and optimistic film.
