Morgan Freeman captures the spirit and presence of Nelson Mandela in his new film "Invictus." Due out Friday, December 11, the film, which also stars Matt Damon, chronicles how the then newly-elected South African President enlists the all-white national rugby team to help unite the apartheid-torn country. Obviously, this isn't the first film to tell Mandela's story or that of apartheid South Africa. Here are seven other films worth seeing if you want to know more about that man and his country.
Zoe Kravitz will be spreading her wings -- literally -- in an upcoming film. The actress/singer was recently cast in "X-Men: First Class." Kravitz, daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, will play Angel, a mutant with fly-like wings, in the next film from the Marvel Comics franchise based on X-Men comic books. She joins Edi Gathegi ("Twilight: New Moon"), Kevin Bacon and January Jones ("Mad Men").
