James Gregory is a racist South African guard whose certainties of life are shaken to the core. During a twenty year span, James spent his time as Nelson Mandela's prison warden. Shows the daily application of a major historic abonimation, known as Apartheid, as seen through the eyes of the average White South African. These are 'ordinary' people who are neither heroes nor villains, but obtuse conformists. The violence of the system on its white citizens was considerably more hidden than on its black ones, but it was violence all the same. White's were obligated to remain as ignorant as possible or be persecuted by the status quo.

Great story about Nelson Mandela and his personal guard. Too bad Mr. Mandela had to be imprisoned for nearly three decades(1962-1990). Such a loss of great potential!

Great story. Joseph Fiennes did a fantastic job as James Gregory - the racist South African guard whose ideas about apartheid and "kaffirs" change when he is put in charge of Mandela at Robben Island. However, I don't think Dennis Haysbert was well-cast to play Mandela -- Morgan Freeman did a much better job of portraying this living legend in Invictus. Still a movie worth watching.
