Based on an inspirational true story, Goodbye Bafana tracks the unlikely but profound relationship between James Gregory (Joseph Fiennes), a racist South African jailer, and his prisoner, Nelson Mandela (Dennis Haysbert). Gregory is ordered to spy on Mandela because he understands Mandela's native language. No one expected that a friendship would grow between these two very different men. Through Mandela's influence, Gregory's world will change forever. Powerful and uplifting, Goodbye Bafana delivers a moving message of hope, courage and humanity.
very intersting story of the early life of nelson mandela,well told and acted by all concerned, good as the acting is,iam a bit concernd dennis heysbert as mandela, hes a fine actor but his statue and presence is a bit 'off' to convice you, well made film, very interesting to see how his 'friendship' to his 'jailer' progressed over the yrs. very much worth a watch definatly,
