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 others struggle for freedom makes him a worldwide symbol of South Africa's heroic fight for democracy.

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.
