    And they had to use Edris Elba to tell a South African story. scr*w the profits, Mandela's name is being prostituted. The sisters will now sue for royalties!

    I was an extra in this movie. Funny thing how SA actors buzzed themselves like sh*t to Idris Elba. Our local actors were so arrogant, playing with their phones on set - while Elba appeared down to earth. Trevor Manuel even popped in briefly.
