Description

Joseph Fiennes (Running with Scissors, Shakespeare in Love) and Dennis Haysbert (TV's 24) star in the incredible true story of the deep bond that develops between political prisoner Nelson Mandela and James Gregory, the racist white South African who was Mandela's prison guard for more than 20 years. Based on Gregory's controversial memoir, Goodbye Bafana, the Color of Freedom powerfully chronicles the life-changing journey both men experience during Mandela's imprisonment - as one man confronts the racism he has always known, the other's struggle for freedom makes him a worldwide symbol of South Africa's heroic fight for democracy.

Synopsis
James Gregory's powerful memoir is brought to the screen in this adaptation. Gregory (played here by Joseph Fiennes) was Nelson Mandela's prison guard for over 20 years, and his deep-seated racism was severely challenged and ultimately changed as a result of the experience. Mandela is played by acclaimed actor Dennis Haysbert (24). Bille August, whose films have twice won the Palm d'Or at Cannes, directs this drama that also stars NATIONAL TREASURE's Diane Kruger.
