Mandela's daughter, Zindzi, thought that the filmmakers captured a realistic portrayal of her father. “What I liked about The Long Walk to Freedom is that it talks to my father as a boy who grew up in an African Village and the impact that he had in the international sphere on the global level.”
Mandela is featured in other note-worthy films: Invictus, The Color of Freedom, and Winnie Mandela, plus several made-for-TV films, including Endgame, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), and Mandela and de Klerk, starring Sidney Poitier.
