The Invictus is one of the arousing movies that contain manipulations, emotions and its open to the commitment of the beliefs in the basic decency of the humanity, unafraid of accusation of sloppiness and unabashed in the aim of inspiring and drawing people together. The movie begins by giving an illustration of the divided society, and it was released in 27n years of incarceration. As Mandela was driving along the road between two playing fields, one side is black kids playing in the rusty goal posts while the other side it’s immaculately kitted for the white boys playing rugby. As Mandela passed, the black kids shouted while on the other hand, the white coach said: “This is the day our country went to the dogs” (Clint, Lori, & Robert, 2009).
Later on, in the movie, Mandela was elected as the president putting him into the terrific task of forgiveness seeking and reconciliation. In the crucial, controversial decision of risking alienated black supporters through prevention of new sports counsel “abolition of springbock rugby team and the green and gold uniforms.” This enhanced a positive move in bringing unity by supporting the team in 1995 world cup. Therefore he makes use of the rugby championship for the political and also moral purposes. He invited Francois Pienaar who is a middle-class man and the captain of the badly failing team, and in the conversation, Mandela asks him the greatest philosophy of leadership. He says that he always lead by example. Pienaar and his team later make unforgettable visit to the Robben Island where Mandela was jailed for 18 years, and he tries to imagine the way life was like in prison. In the last minute, the movie is dominated by a series of rugby games presenting a game of dispiriting light in the face of South Africa.
