It’s gotten rave reviews from critics, and has gotten some criticism from Winnie Mandela herself. But Jennifer Hudson is putting her Oscar-winning acting chops back on display with Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard for their new Winnie movie.
The movie, shot in South Africa, tells a story that chronicles the life of political activist Winnie Mandela from her childhood through her marriage and her husband’s incarceration.
A few stills from the movie.
The 15 million dollar budget is sure to lend way to a box office hit.
No release date for the U.S. has been set. But it will be shown in Canada this December.
